Art Show International's
Solo Exhibitions
Art Show International announces their all new 2021 Solo Exhibition Contest. All visual artists from around the world are invited to submit their 5 best artworks to win an invitation as a solo artist in our gallery. This will now be a regular feature at Art Show International. Each month, an exclusive offer will be extended to one artist selected from among our highly talented artist pool. One Grand Prize Winner selected from among all artists participating in this Solo Contest during 2021 will receive a $1,000 cash award.


Artists need not adhere to any specific theme for their solo exhibition.
All types of styles and mediums are welcome, including both 2D and 3D works, painting, sculpture, digital, printmaking, fiber, photography, graphic, mixed media, video, as well as experimental and installation works.



The submission deadline for the solo exhibition will normally be the last day of each month. However, if enough entries are not received during a particular month, a rolling submission deadline may be set. In this case, the entries will be considered alongside following month's entries. We will try our best to represent at least12 solo artists throughout 2021 so we maximize the chances among our diverse artist base.  



$1,000 in cash prizes will be given out to the Artist of the Year who will be selected from the 12 artists exhibiting their works during the year. Additional Second and Third prizes may also be considered depending on submission volumes. *

Artist of the Year Award $1,000 **

* In case there are joint winners for any of the cash prizes the money will be evenly split among contestants.

** All cash prizes are given out via PayPal. If you don't have a free PayPal account, you can get one here.

*** The prize money for these prizes will be determined at a later date.


In addition to cash prize awards, Solo Exhibitions will also be heavily promoted via Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.




The entry fee for up to 5 artworks is a flat $35 (non-refundable). Please make all artwork submissions in a single session.



Solo Exhibitions of artists are tentatively scheduled to run during each month, starting in January 2021.
