• Anyone of any age from anywhere in the world (Under 13 you will have to get a teacher or parent to submit for you)
Application Deadline: October 9
Highlight: Are you an artist? Are you interested in showcasing your artwork to a wide range of people? Then Embracing our differences might just be a great art competition for you to check out. It is an exhibit that helps artists to invoke social changes and can help enlighten and educate changes across the world. This art competition is annual and has no entry fee. Artists can also submit as many entries as they like, and they can submit pieces that they have submitted to other contests as well! The judging committee of this art competition selects 50 art pieces that best convey diversity and inclusion (in their eyes). The 50 selected pieces will be enlarged to 12×16 feet! And they will be displayed in an outdoor exhibition in Florida that welcomes over 4 million visitors each year from January to Mid-May! From these 50 pieces, visitors to the exhibition choose winners in 3 categories (Best-in-Show Adult, Best -in-Show Student, and the People’s Choice) and each will win a $2000 prize. Though this art competition does not restrict artists to what they want to draw, artists must follow some drawing and submission guidelines. In addition to their art piece(s), artists must include a 150 word paragraph explaining their creative process. The deadline for submissions is October 9! It’s the perfect chance to have your artwork BLOW UP!
