Open Call for artists

Email Friend Add to Favorites Report Listing

Tagsmart is thrilled to announce its first open call open for all practising artists! No application fee.

We are Tagsmart, a company dedicated to building trust in the art market. We do this by securing works with DNA Tags, issuing Certificates of Authenticity and recording provenance history on our platform.

We have recently launched Tagsmart Connect, the first service that enables artists to submit verified artworks directly to online retailers. We want to promote artists and help drive their sales by delivering trusted art.

To celebrate the launch of Connect, the selected artists will win free tagging and certification for their winning work which includes 1 free DNA Tag and 1 free Certificate of Authenticity. Furthermore, Smoke Gallery, the first fully certified gallery, will be featuring the winning artists online when it launches. The winners will also be promoted on our social media and newsletters.


  • Work across 2D media including canvas, paper, photographic prints, aluminium, foam board, plywood etc.

  • You must have an active Tagsmart profile and have submitted at least 3 works to Connect channels before the 19th of November. You can do this in four simple steps:

  1. Create a free Tagsmart Account (here)

  2. Verify your free artist Profile (here)

  3. Add at least three artworks describing your works that are available for sale. You can find out how to do this (here)

  4. Submit the works to one or more channels on our Connect service - you can find out how to do this (here).


Contact if you have any questions about getting set up.
