All traditional painting media is accepted including but not limited to oil, acrylic, watercolor, pastel, pencil, ink, and mixed media.

Best in Show and Finalist winners are announced after the 20th day of the month following the competition month. This gives Judges time to make their selections and write commentaries for Best in Show winning paintings. Finalist Award Certificates. Best in Show and Finalists from all months of the competition contend for annual Grand Awards in August.
