International Juried Art Competition
August - September 2021
Art Show International announces their "3rd LANDSCAPE" 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.
Our 2020-21 “LANDSCAPE” Art Competition was a great success, and a total $1,550 in cash prizes are being given out to 14 talented artists.
There were a number of other gifted artists who were quite deserving of the prize money, and could have as easily won the competition.
Art Show International will continue to be understanding of the artists' needs and preferences.
We hope to be able to distribute prize money equitably to help out more artists in our community.
The theme of this international juried art competition is LANDSCAPE. Artists are free to apply their own interpretation in representing the overall theme. You can rely on the broadest meaning of the subject matter, so it’s perfectly fine to include scenes of cityscapes, water habitats, etc. Additionally, natural and artificial subject matters, as well as representational, surreal, and abstract concepts, in any media, will be considered.
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 July 31st, 2021.*
* The deadline may be extended in case of submission disruptions from artists due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Awards & Prizes
Up to $850 in cash prizes will be given out to 5 – 8 winning artists.** The grant money will be unrestricted and may be used in any manner by the recipient artist. Depending on the number and quality of artworks submitted, the following prizes will be considered:
First Prize Award (Overall) $200-$300
Merit Prize Award (Painting & Mixed Media) $100-$150
Merit Prize Award (Photography & Digital) $100-$150
Merit Prize Award (Sculpture & 3D Installation) $100-$150
Talent Prize Award (Overall) $50-$100
Winning artworks from all artists will be displayed on Art Show International's gallery walls. 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 entries. The final prize amount will depend on the total number of entries but will always be within the indicated range.
The entry fee for each artwork is $10 (non-refundable), with up to 5 submissions for each artist.
