Guidelines for Submission

  • Must be a female student in Grades 3-12
  • Design a 3D (physical) code-based artwork, such as:
    • a 3D-printed object using a program like Tinkercad, 3D Slash, or SketchUp.
    • a physical artpiece that incorporate programmable electronics (such as Arduino or Raspberry Pi)
    • an art piece that incorporates both 3D printing AND programmable electronics
  • If you do not have access to a 3D printer, you can submit your design files for display only.
  • To be considered for the competition, you must submit your 3D code-based artwork.
    • In addition to submitting online form, you must contact us at info@code-art.com to arrange for drop-off or pick-up of your physical artwork.
    • If you cannot afford to print your design, contact us at least 14 days prior to the deadline, and we will try to help you get it printed (no guarantees that we will succeed).
    • All artwork will be returned after Code/Art Miami event.*
  • There is no limit to number of submissions per contestant, but each contestant may only win one prize per category.
  • Each entry must include a short write-up describing your 3D code-based artwork and what it means to you.
  • All work must be your own.


3D artwork will be judged by a panel of computing professionals from academia and industry. Entries will be judged equally on:

  • Creativity
  • Complexity
  • Emotional Impact
  • Quality of the design and code
  • Write-up


Prizes will be presented during an Awards Ceremony at Code/Art Miami. All contestants are strongly encouraged to attend, but need not be present to win. Awards will be given to the top 3 contestants in each of two age groups:

  • Lower (3rd – 8th grade)
  • Upper (9th-12th grade)

Prizes are selected both to reward effort and to encourage further exploration of coding.

Submission Deadline: Feb 22nd

Email info@Code-Art.com if you have questions or comments.

  • Submitted artwork will be displayed at Code/Art Miami event. In the unlikely circumstance that an entry is deemed inappropriate, Code/Art reserves the right to not display it.

* All physical artwork will be returned after the event. Code/Art is not responsible for any damage that may occur to submitted 3D artwork.
