What Makes this event different?

Exhibition of artists' paintings in popular social media networks such as Pinterest and freedom to the artist to sell and keep 100% of their own sales during display of their work at PaintingContest.Org. In Pinterest, artists' paintings are viewed and shared exponentially over time. The goal: to attract potential collectors and buyers during and after the monthly competition.
