Submission Requirements
The deadline for submissions to the NSSA Space Mission Patch Contest is April 30 (11:59 pm Eastern Australian Time).

Artists are allowed to submit more than one entry to the contest. Our contest is open to all people age 12 and above.

All artists submitting artwork will be required to agree to the contest’s 
Terms and Conditions for Submitted Artwork.

All submissions must be made in a digital format and will only be accepted via the NSSA Space Mission Patch Submission Form.

A screening process will be in place and the review committee reserves the right to reject any submission without showing cause.

Image Subject Matter
  • All artwork must be original work.
  • All submitted art must be a depiction of human space exploration or settlement either in space or on a planet.
  • The art work on the space mission patch must use the words NSSA either on the circumference or within the patch.

Additional details as to acceptable content and how judges will be evaluating the artwork can be found in the 
Judging Guidelines for Submitted Artwork document.

Image Technical Specifications
You are free to choose any medium to use for the creation of your artwork, but submissions must be in digital format with recommended dimensions of 1000 pixels by 1000 pixels for a mission patch.

Images that are obviously enlarged to meet the size requirement (with resulting degradation in quality) will be rejected.

Smaller images may be submitted but will be considered only for Honorable Mention.

The initial submitted images must be full size but in 
JPEG format and must not exceed 4 megabytes in size (which may require some file compression). If an image is one of the winners of the contest, the artist will be required to submit the original uncompressed
