International Juried Art Competition
Art Show International announces their all new "2nd 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.
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 September 15th, 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 8 – 14 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).
If you'd like to enter more than 5 artworks for consideration, please go back to fill in your details and submit again.
