Protege Competition and Exhibition

This year AMSET’s popular Protégé Competition and Exhibition presented its thirty-sixth annual exhibition this year. AMSET invited all twelfth-grade students to enter the 2022 Protégé Competition and Exhibition. Students preparing portfolios for admittance into art schools, or for future employment, may use this as an opportunity to develop professional skills. Entrants do not need to be enrolled in a formal art class at the time of entry. A juror will select a number of works to be exhibited; these artworks will tour the entire region.

Entries for the 2023 competition are not currently open. Please keep an eye on AMSET social media or check back here for updates.

Eligibility: This competition is open to all twelfth-grade students in Chambers, Hardin, Jasper, Jefferson, Liberty, Newton, Orange and Tyler counties.
