Theme and Selection:

“Open 2018” Our competition’s concept is “no specified theme is required for entry.” All artists seeking inclusion are free from category, subject, and medium stipulation. Your art work can range from photo realism to abstraction; it is invited as your spirit of choice and is much appreciated as representation of a personal voice.  There is a welcome “mystery” behind this “tabula rasa” of opportunity which is likely to bring forth stimulating varieties of life’s subjective legacies.  We are extremely optimistic in our quest here to witness talent in all its various philosophies and triumphs of worldwide adventures as seen through the eyes of our valuable, resolute artists.

Eligibility & Mediums: This competition is open to all artists/photographers 18 years of age or older. Submissions for consideration can be expressed in any of the following aspects: representational, expressionism, surrealism, or abstraction.

Our mission is to provide artists/photographers with exposure and extensive marketing of their work and accomplishments to our international list of clientele.
