Each submitted piece must have been created in 2012 or later. Minimum age per entrant is 16. There is no special theme and
no limit to the number of submissions. Submitting a work does not mean that work is automatically accepted. Send images as
jpeg or tiff (less than 2 Mb) at about 72 dpi to email@example.com.
All accepted art will be placed on our YouTube channel. The order that each piece is shown on that video is based on the
order that the entry payment was received. Example: Our show has a June 1 deadline. Your entry is received by us one day
before the deadline. On the video all entries received prior to your's will be shown first.
DUE TO THE LARGE NUMBER OF ENTRIES OUR SHOWS ATTRACT, WE WILL START THE JUDGING AND ARTIST
NOTIFICATION PROCESS IN MID APRIL SO WE CAN MEET OUR GOAL OF COMPLETING ALL ASSESSMENTS AND THE
ROLL OUT OF THE YOUTUBE ACCEPTED ART VIDEO ONE WEEK AFTER OUR JUNE 1 DEADLINE ...BY JUNE 8.
ALL ACCEPTED ARTISTS are also offered a free YouTube video of 10 selected works from their portfolios. The decision to
do this is based on the belief that if your art is good enough to pass our stringent judging and be accepted into our show,
then you probably create art that should be shown to the entire world free of charge. You can view our current videos by
visiting the channel link located on the upper right of our Front Page. Click on the YouTube logo. Don't forget to subscribe to
our channel (there's no cost).The pieces selected for your video must have a similar theme. If in doubt, query us via
Five finalists will be awarded $100.00 each.
An artist entering multiple works can have more than one work accepted. All of these works will be shown on our YouTube
channel. and in our video library. Example: an artist enters 5 works. Three are accepted. All 3 will be shown on
YouTube video and in our video library.
YOUR WORK WILL BE JUDGED ON FOUR CATEGORIES:
•Content. Here, we look for the narrative to help us determine the artist's purpose in creating the piece. If a work suggests
multiple narratives, then it has good interpretative value that the viewer may be able to relate to.
The evaluation for each of your entries shows the form the jurors used in grading your piece. This can aid you in determining
what artistic areas need strengthening, You'll be able to access your scored forms on our website via a pass code which we'll
send to you. The pass code will work for 30 days after it's sent to you.
If your work is accepted, art gallery owners and directors as well as art museum personnel may view it with an eye toward
possible portfolio review, representation, placement or sale.
There are 6 art divisions in all of our shows: 1. Acrylic/Oil; 2. Collage/Mixed Media; 3. Pastel, Colored
Pencil, Graphics; 4. Photography, Print-Making, Digital Art; 5. Water Media (water color, egg tempera);
6. 3-Dimensional (sculptural and other free standing, non animated art).
Gallery or Museum Review of Accepted Work is possible
Whenever a gallery or art museum is interested in one of our accepted artist's work or style, that gallery or museum makes
first contact with us. We, in turn, immediately send an email to the artist, supplying the inquiring venue's name and email
address. At that point we are out of the loop on that contact. We take no commission.
Have a question? Send us an email and one of our friendly volunteer staff members will contact you within 24 hours
The Visual Arts Video Library is designed to
provide working artists with a valuable tool
by which they can broaden their knowledge
and understanding of why they create the
art that they do. The library can also be
used as a source for inspiring original art
work, as well as offering visual cues to aid
in skill development.
