Art Contests are Back!

We are very excited to announce the return of the ArtWanted.com Art Contests! Several times a month we will be posting a new art contest with a different theme (usually on Monday’s).

Artists and photographers are encouraged to submit their own artwork that matches the theme of the contest. The artwork submitted may be art you have done in the past, or may be a new piece of new art you create just for the contest.

We will accept contest entries for two weeks after the contest is announced and then have a full week of voting for those entries. Voting is open to all ArtWanted.com members. The votes will be calculated and the winner will be announced on the website and the contest entries will be sorted by most popular vote. The top winner will be given a small prize and all participants will receive more exposure to their artwork and a link back to their portfolio.

We encourage all ArtWanted.com members to check out the contests on a regular basis and participate in them. The art contests are found inside the message boards under the "Art Contests" category.

Submit your contest ideas on the following message post.

This is a painting I just recently finished and I chose the cherries front and center because they are in season now and wonderfully sweet. I am really delving into capturing seasonal things, places and events.

Nancy - Thanks for your entry for the contest, but this is actually not the place to submit the entry, as this is not the contest page.

Please visit the following link and reply to that post to submit your entry, thank you.

when I tried to submit an entry for "Ships & Boats" it was rejected, saying that the contest entry was "closed" However on the contest page, the Deadline for Entries is listed as July 25, eight days from now. So did you guys close the entries a week too soon? Or, is someone NOT proofreading your postings?
