M'art'ch Madness 2023

K-12 Student Art Competition

Do you have a dance, sculpture, painting, drawing, monologue, or musical performance to share that shows how the arts have impacted your life? Submit your original artwork to the  M’art’ch Madness 2023 Art Competition. 


M’art’ch Madness is an art competition featuring digitally-submitted student art on the theme Arts for Life. 


Submissions from dance, drama, music, visual arts, media arts, and literary arts will be published in an online gallery at and on Instagram and Facebook. Sixteen finalists will be displayed on the Arts for Life Utah Instagram story in March and followers will vote to determine the Grand Prize Winner. There will also be Judges Choice Awards for each art form (dance, drama, music, visual arts, media arts)


The deadline to submit is March 10th, 2023. Voting will begin March 27th!


This year we are focused on the theme of “Earth. Arts. Life.” Consider these prompts as you create your own works of art this year.

  • How do the arts give you life? How does the earth give you life? 

  • How can you use elements of the earth to create your art?

  • How does art connect you with yourself, others, and/or the earth?

  • What inspires you to create?

  • How do the arts help you heal? How do the arts heal the earth?

  • How do you use art to make the earth a better place?
