  • Take a photograph of the completed piece.
  • Include your chosen advertisement with your submission.
  • Write a 300-word reflection explaining how the artwork relates to the advertisement you choose. 
  • Submit the photograph of the original work, the accompanying ad, reflection, and release form, NO LATER THAN JANUARY 28TH to: Villanova History Department 800 E. Lancaster Ave. Villanova, PA 19085 Any questions can be relayed to the team informationwantedorg@gmail.com.
