Art Show International's
Solo Exhibitions
Art Show International announces their 2021 Solo Exhibition Competition. 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 artists selected from among our highly talented artist pool. One Grand Prize Winner selected from among all artists participating in this Solo Competition during 2021 will receive a $1,000 cash award. Additional cash prizes will also be announced.






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, these entries will be considered alongside following month's entries. We will try our best to represent at least twelve solo artists during the year so we maximize the chances among our diverse artist base. In the event we receive an overwhelming response from many exceptionally talented artists, we might decide to hold multiple solo exhibitions simultaneously.



$1,000 in cash prizes will be given out to the Artist of the Year who will be selected from the all solo artists exhibiting their works during the year. Additional Second, Third, and Merit prizes will also be given out.

Artist of the Year Award $1,000 *

Second Prize Award $500**

Third Prize Award $250**

Merit Prize Award TBA***

Talent Prize Award TBA***

Honorable Mention Award

Finalist Award

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

** The prize money indicated for Second and Third Place is approximate at this time, and will be determined by the volume of submissions received.

*** To be announced.

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


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. 

If you'd like to increase your chances of winning by submitting more than 5 artworks, you're welcome to do so by completing the submission process again for an additional $35.

We don't set a limit to the number of submissions you can make.

Artist selection is done on an ongoing basis, and can take anywhere between 1 day to 2 weeks, depending on when the jury is able to meet. Once the selection process is complete, in the event an artist is invited to participate in our Solo Exhibition, the artist will be able to choose from our ELITE or PRO plans. Please refer to our Terms & Conditions for additional details.

Please understand that ART SHOW INTERNATIONAL was started solely as a means to help out artists both financially and by providing a platform for international exposure during the pandemic, so we do NOT make any profit. All artist fees go towards paying out cash prizes to the most deserving artists in our monthly Art Competitions and yearly Solo Exhibitions, as well as covering ads, outreach, and other administrative costs.



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