Event History

For 12 years, the PleinAir Salon Art Competition, inspired by the historic French Salon organized by the Academie des Beaux-Arts in Paris, has offered artists opportunities for growth and recognition through its annual competition and 12 monthly cycles. The competition awards over $50,000 in cash prizes and promotes artists' work extensively. The grand prize includes featuring the winning painting on the cover of PleinAir Magazine. Monthly winners gain recognition via the magazine's print edition, e-newsletters, and social media platforms, and are automatically entered into the annual competition held each spring.

What Makes this event different?

Our competition is entirely online, eliminating the need to mail artwork for exhibition. Submissions are welcome regardless of their status in other competitions. Each Grand Prize winner is awarded $15,000 and their artwork is featured on PleinAir Magazine's cover, the leading representational art magazine at Barnes & Noble. Monthly winners are automatically entered into the Annual Competition for a chance to win the $15,000 prize.
