entries & awards

An artist grows by leaps and bounds when he or she puts artwork in the public eye for feedback, and that is what art competitions are all about. Historically, patronage, commissions, and incredible opportunities have all been prizes afforded to winners of major art competitions.


Nowadays, drawing and painting competitions continue to allow artists to display their work among their peers, have it reviewed by esteemed judges, and sometimes receive exhibition opportunities.


But more than the competitive spirit drives fine art competitions. These venues or events (at their best) showcase noteworthy emerging artists, those with unique perspectives, and artists with technical acuity.


Viewers walk away from a great art competition with a real sense of what art-making looks like right now, and participating artists are able to make a statement—whether it is cultural, political, aesthetic, or formalist—to the art world at large.

Oil painting, painting in oil colours, a medium consisting of pigments suspended in drying oils. The outstanding facility with which fusion of tones or colour is achieved makes it unique among fluid painting mediums; at the same time, satisfactory linear treatment and crisp effects are obtained.

Acrylic mediums are substances (fluid, gel, or paste) that you can mix with acrylic paints to manipulate the properties of the paint. The base of mediums is the same as acrylic paint, which is an acrylic polymer emulsion. The difference is that, unlike paints, mediums don’t contain any color pigments.

Watercolor mediums and additives are liquids or gels that you can add to watercolor paint to make it glossy, more transparent, textured, pearlescent and more. Their use in watercolor painting isn’t as common as other media like acrylics and oils, but they can be useful for certain techniques.

Tile murals are murals made out of stone, ceramic, porcelain, glass and or metal tiles that are installed within, or added onto the surface of an existing wall.

Sculptures are an artistic form in which hard or plastic materials are worked into three-dimensional art objects. The designs may be embodied in freestanding objects, in reliefs on surfaces, or in environments ranging from tableaux to contexts that envelop the spectator.
