We know first hand how hard it is for artists to keep a steady flow of income coming in, this award is meant to help fill in some  gaps. 

Visual artists worldwide are eligible to enter in the following categories: Installation, photography, conceptual, prints, drawing, painting, mixed media, sculpture, glass and video.

Send us 10 to 20 images that most represent what you are doing, or just send us a link to your website before the entry deadline.

1. $1,200 Dollars. Thanks to your contributions we are now able to increase the award value of our quarterly competition to $1,200 dollars. The full amount will be given to the artist selected by our jurors.
2. -Become a Juror. Part of our mission is to have a diverse input injected into our judging criteria. That is why the winner of this award is also invited to take part in our selections committee for the fall and winter competitions.

A SMALL PIECE. In return for the award we ask the winner to send us an original piece, albeit small but representative of her or his work. Such piece will become part of paidartists permanent collection and should be considered of similar value to that of the award. As a standard guideline we do not ask for the piece until the winner has taken possession of the award. We pay for the shipping costs.

-There is a $25.00 administrative fee that must be paid at time of entry. (Can’t afford the fee? let us know the circumstances).
