Excellence of Execution

  • The work must be well-made and impeccably finished.  A mastery of the medium used should be apparent.
  • Sculpting should be flawless and proportions accurate or harmoniously fitting the concept of the piece if exaggerated.
  • Hair should be of a material appropriate to the piece and flawlessly applied.
  • Costuming should be well conceived and expertly sewn, using fabric appropriate to the figure’s scale or its intended effect.


  • A NIADA Artist must be trusted to exhibit the highest quality of workmanship in every piece.
  • Each NIADA Artist should reflect and represent the organization with the highest personal standards for their work.

Identity of Design

  • Every NIADA Artist should have a style of working that is utterly unique and recognizable.
  • This is an essential element of NIADA’s standards; each NIADA Artist’s having a true signature style elevates the work into the realm of high art.
