April 2021


Art Show International announces their all new 2021 "1st STILL LIFE" International Juried Art Competition. All visual artists from around the world are invited to submit their best artworks on the theme for inclusion in the exhibition. All types of art styles may be submitted, including both 2D and 3D works, painting, sculpture, digital, printmaking, fiber, photography, graphic, mixed media, as well as experimental and installation works.


Here's what we've been up to lately...

$1,000 cash prizes | 5 prize categories | 5 winning artists


72 artists | 106 artworks | 9 countries

$500 cash prizes | 5 prize categories | 6 winning artists




​The theme of this international juried art competition is STILL LIFE. This includes the art of commonplace objects which are either natural, such as food, flowers, plants, rocks, shells, and even dead animals, or man-made ones, such as books, vases, jewelry, coins, pipes, etc. Representational and abstract ideas based broadly on the theme, in any media, will be considered. See below for more details on submission guidelines.


​All types of visual arts will be considered, including but not limited to Painting & Mixed Media, Photography & Digital, and Sculpture & 3D Installation.



The deadline for submission is February 28th, 2021.*

The deadline may be extended in case of submission disruptions from artists due to the coronavirus pandemic.


Winning artworks from all artists will be displayed on Art Show International's gallery walls. Depending on the number of submissions, cash prizes may be offered to winners.** Winners who do not qualify for cash prizes will still receive widespread global recognition through extensive promotion via social media, monthly newsletters, and in the news media. At the conclusion of the Annual Art Show, the winning artworks will be archived and considered for future publication as full page print edition in leading art magazines.

​** In case there are joint winners for any of the cash prizes the money will be split evenly among contestants. Similarly, if a category does not receive enough entries to be judged fairly within that category alone, it will be considered alongside other categories with sufficient submissions. 



The entry fee for each artwork is $10 (non-refundable), with up to 5 submissions for each artist.
