Print Email Friend Add to Favorites Report Listing

Event History

This award is now in its 3rd Edition. It first launched in November, 2019, by artist Chantal Boynes as a way to support other artists and grow an art platform where we could all thrive and benefit from. The 1st and 2nd edition saw a huge amount of support. Due to that we were able to follow through on our promise that as support for us grew, support for you would as well. In this 3rd edition, we have managed to increase the prizes all around for a 3rd time, especially the cash prizes! We look forward to continuing to support our fellow artists, especially in these difficult times.

What Makes this event different?

The goal of this award is to give a platform to all talented artists around the world, and not just to those who come, 1st, 2nd or 3rd. We keep tabs on all talent and strive to present opportunities (such as writing an art profile on our blog, social media, website exposure) to all who entered the contest. Regardless if you won or "lost", your work will still be considered for any opportunities we think may benefit you. We are dedicated to growing a platform that would truly benefit the millions of talented artists around the world.
