Call for Entries – Artist Playing Cards Project

ArtWanted is excited to announce a new project to literally put your art into the hands of more people. We are planning to create several themed decks of poker-style playing cards that feature the artwork of our talented ArtWanted members.

The Artist Playing Cards project will help promote many of the great artists on ArtWanted and also bring ArtWanted to new audiences.

We are now accepting artwork entries to be part of this playing card project. There is no cost to submit your entry and we will accept entries through April 30th, 2018.

There are lots of details about this project that we want to share, so we have created a new section of the website with all the details. Click the link below to learn more about this project and to submit your entries.

As always, if you have any comments or questions, post them here by reply. We look forward to seeing the artwork you submit for the Artist Playing Cards project.



Marie House 16 Mar 2018

Hello. I uploaded my animal images of paintings yesterday for the Artist playing cards project. Am I being premature in my uploading ?Also How can I go in to edit those images as much as this technical system will allow me , such as inputting copyright watermarks on my images . Thank you .

ArtWanted.com Staff 16 Mar 2018

Thanks for jumping on board so quickly Marie and no, there is no problem with that, it's great.

There is not really a place to "Edit" the images you submit. However, if you have a better image/version of your artwork, you can delete the previously uploaded images and upload better images. If you want a watermark on your images, you can do that before you upload them, but typically in something like this, you would not watermark them as this would detract from the cards and artwork when printed.

Here is the page to manage and upload more artwork:

I uploaded 2 images for the cards. Were they received? I have not heard from you that you received them. Let me know thanks an did you receive my sea life turtle for the water art contest?

ArtWanted.com Staff 17 Mar 2018

Kelly, when you upload any images for the playing cards, they will be displayed for you on screen with a preview of the card. Yes, we did get your two images (wolf & lion).

We also received your contest entry as well. Thanks!

Miss Daphne has recently passed, her Mom and Dad are great friends of ours. I would like to honor her with this card and picture!

This is an interesting endeavor & I hope it succeeds. Enclosed is a 300dpi rgb file at about 120% of the needed size of a playing card . The white background may ease re-positioning onto pre-printed materials & I'll await future requirements. In 5 minutes I'll be sending another separate file on another email reply like this one in the interests of keeping things simple (for me). Thanks & good luck guys.

Andrew Wahrmund 18 Mar 2018

...this is the 2nd of 2 files that were sent for consideration for the deck of playing cards project. Thanks again guys.

Ginger - Thanks for your thoughts and wanting to honor Miss Daphne. Unfortunately, for legal reasons, each artist needs to sign an artwork release that they are the original creator and they must be living to do so. We are not able to accept Miss Daphne's artwork of the dog for this particular project.

ArtWanted.com Staff 19 Mar 2018

Andrew - Thanks for your interest in the playing card project. Your images will need to be submitted on our official form for the project for them to be accepted as entries, so we can capture the full image (the message board resizes large images to a smaller size for display only).

To resubmit your images, please go to the following page:

Deborah Blount 24 Mar 2018

I am trying to delete one of my card submissions, but when I try, it says "page does not exist". I would like to delete one and resubmit a better image.

Thank you!

ArtWanted.com Staff 24 Mar 2018

Thanks for the note Deborah. We have fixed the delete button that was giving you problems, please try again.

G Durich 01 Apr 2018

I tried to submit images (2) for the Playing Card project, but they came out the wrong way around. A bear and a cat. Could you help please?

ArtWanted.com Staff 02 Apr 2018

G DURICH - We will rotate the images for you, so they show up correctly on the cards.

G Durich 02 Apr 2018

Really? Thank You! Are the images - actually, what do you think of them? What's next please? Thanks!??

ArtWanted.com Staff 02 Apr 2018

G Durich - Right now you just need to wait. We will start the voting in a few weeks and the top images will be selected to be in the deck of cards.
