I am a professional full-time artist and painter myself and have been working in Los Angeles and the art world for the last 18 years. Over the years, I have made some wonderful contacts and been part of some pretty amazing artistic opportunities. I thought that it would be a great idea to work with other artists by developing some Art Competitions with Cash Prizes, Certificates, and Gallery Exhibition Opportunities based on some of these experiences and contacts. I thought I could facilitate this and expose beginning and mid-level artists to some wonderful contemporary Artists, Curators, and Peers working today. Unlike most art competitions, this is run with an artist's mindset and I promise to keep you (us), the artist in mind with everything I do and strive to offer down the road.
Through these competitions, artists will be competing to win 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Place Cash Prizes and Award Certificates as well as Honorable Mention Certificates. Winners' work and personal website link will also be displayed on the Past Competition Winners page for them to link to and reference. With every competition that you submit to, you will automatically be entered into a pool of artists to keep in mind for future exhibition opportunities with galleries and curators that I have a relationship with and will be developing relationships with. Competitions will be evolving and working up to providing specific competition winners (as well as artists from this pool) with Solo, Two-Person, and small Group Gallery Exhibition Opportunities in a handful of exciting new and established galleries in Los Angeles.
This competition is open to any abstract themed artistic medium that can be encapsulated in a singular picture/jpeg format. Open to creative interpretation, but a good guideline for this submission is, can your artwork be displayed on a conventional gallery wall or in a single gallery room? If your submission fits these two loose criteria, it is most likely welcome in this Abstract Competition. This first competition will be juried by myself, as well as a handful of anonymous, hand-picked International working artists and curators that will be disclosed when the winners are announced. I thought this would be a nice change of pace and will function to deter artists from trying to tailor their submission to any specific juror's artistic taste. Submit only the work that you like best.
Artworks will be judged based on creativity, interpretation, originality, quality of work, composition, and overall artistic ability.
Art Competitions will run monthly or every few months and have different themes. Competition Winners will be announced in the following month (that a Competition is running) through the Past Competition Winners link at the bottom of the page and will remain published on this page for winners to reference on their respective resumes and future submissions. Also, you will receive an email newsletter announcing the winners and upcoming opportunities. For now, if you would like to ENTER the current competition, you can do so below.
