A few deadlines have passed this week in terms of art contests! Several I’m quite excited about, but I won’t hear from for awhile or until next month.
Here is the round up:
UncommonGoods Art Contest
This one I’m really excited about because not only do you win money with it, but the retailer will ‘buy’ your print to be sold on their website which reaches thousands! You’ll also get %5 of each print sold through their retailer.
Working Art Grant/Purchase Award
This contest has money as well, but the goal for this contest is to award an artist with funds to help boost productivity.
This contest is unique in the sense that it is located in Bilbao, Spain and they will be doing the production of a solo exhibition as part of the award with a small monetary prize. The contest is celebrating creativity as a whole. Doing something that is risky in terms of the world of art.
En Em Art Space
This contest is unique in the sense that you’ll be competing for representation at a new contemporary art gallery in Sacramento, CA.
CultureHub Art & Technology Festival
This is more of an exhibition type of event. An art & technology festival is occurring in NY in November of this year. I thought it was an interesting fit for my artwork.
Burn Magazine Emerging Photographer Fund
This one I am most excited about currently. Burn Magazine is an established photography magazine and they award a quite generous grant to an emerging photographer who they think represents an ‘icon’ for tomorrow.
“Surface & Depth” exhibition at the Golden Thread Gallery
This is an exhibition that I just got into that is about creating depth on a surface and vice versa. The Golden Thread Gallery is located in West Hartford, CT.
There you have it! I’ll be back at the end of next week with another round up of art contests.
