ASPA has a new certificate granting program for graphic artists--The ASPA Artists of Merit program. It replaces our successful ASPA Certified Graphic Artist program that was in operation for over ten years and was used by artists in print shops, student artists in schools and freelance artists throughout the world.
Our new program has been completely revised and expanded. It recognizes student artists, graphic artists, cartoonists, digital artists, and illustrators for their creative efforts. It's purpose is to motivate students and artists by giving third party recognition of their talent and ability.
The ASPA Artists of Merit program is easy for artists to participate. Artists submit a design to us online. Your artwork submission can be a simple, one color line art or text design, a multi-color design, realistic or cartoon style artwork. You only need to submit one design.
We'll review your artwork and issue an Artist of Merit certificate upon a satisfactory evaluation. Our evaluation system takes into account several factors that enables most artists to pass without difficulty. All artists who receive a satisfactory evaluation receive a printed certificate and will be listed on the roster of ASPA Artists of Merit and become ASPA Associate Members at no charge (a $30 value). The ASPA Artist of Merit badge is available for placement on your website or blog.
The participation fee is $39. Which includes artwork evaluation, preparation of certificates and mailing.
