Call for Entries - 2024 Theme Calendars

ArtWanted already allows every artist to create their own calendar to sell. This year, we wanted to try something different. We want to add 4 new themed calendars to our lineup. These theme calendars will include artwork/photography from 12 different artists, one for each month of the year. Every artist can submit one image for consideration for each calendar theme.

Calendar Themes

The four calendar themes we have decided to create this year are:
1. Landscapes / Outdoor
2. Animals / Wildlife
3. Fantasy / Sci-Fi
4. Floral Photography

We plan to include both artwork and photography with each calendar, except for the floral calendar, which will only contain photographs.

Call For Entries

From now until the end of the month, all ArtWanted artists can submit one image for each of the 4 calendars. Image must be high-resolution (at least 2,000 pixels wide) and landscape images are preferred. In October, our staff will review all of the submissions and pick 12 images from 12 different artists for each calendar. Those that are selected to be included will be notified via email. There is no cost/fee to submit your artwork. To submit your entries, click here.

NOTE: The artwork/artists in the image above were selected at random from last year's calendar submissions. This artwork is not the final selection for the 2024 theme calendars.

Artist Compensation

For our normal calendars, the artist earns an average of $6 per calendar sold, for a calendar that only contains artwork for one artist. For these theme calendars, we will take that $6 and divide it by 12, so each artist will earn $0.50 USD for each calendar sold. Commissions will be paid out once a month after sales have been calculated for the previous month. Artists will also receive additional exposure to their artwork through this project.


Artwork submissions are due by the end of September. After the artists for each calendar are selected, the calendars will be made available for purchase on the ArtWanted website in November. These calendars will be sold exclusively on ArtWanted.com until the spring of 2024.

Personal Calendars

Just as a reminder, you can also create your own personal calendar to sell on ArtWanted at anytime. There is no cost to create and build your own calendar that features your own artwork. This calendar would be promoted on your ArtWanted portfolio and you would earn commission from each sale. To learn more, visit this blog post.

Submit Your Artwork Now

We only have a very small window of time to submit your artwork for these calendars. Click here to submit your artwork before the end of the month.

Dear ArtWanted Staff/Friends.Trust you all are well. Fantasy/Sci-Fi. Could you perhaps just elaborate,in some way, what exactly would qualify under this category?Thanking you.Kind regards.

ArtWanted.com Staff 15 Sep 2023

Fred - Fantasy: The genre typically has no basis in scientific fact or speculation. It includes implausible supernatural and magical elements, such as the wizards of J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series, or the dragons, giants, and White Walkers of George R. R. Martin's A Game of Thrones.

Sci-Fi: Short for science fiction, so anything supernatural or that could take place in the future(including space, aliens, the future, etc.)

John - Please submit your calendar images on our dedicated high-res calendar page here: https://www.artwanted.com/cp/calendar/themes/

If accepted, can we pick the month we would like our art in?

ArtWanted.com Staff 17 Sep 2023

Lucien - For this project, we will be picking which artwork will be placed for each month. You can send us a message with a suggestion, but we can't promise it will be selected on the final calendar.

I had sent an images for the calendar you are doing, I sent one in for landscape, Fantasy and animals/wildlife but you are only showing the entries from me for Landscape and Fantasy, I am wondering what happened to the entry for the wildlife I sent it??

ArtWanted.com Staff 09 Oct 2023

Gary - Our records only show that we received the two entries for this contest from your account, not one for animals. We apologize if there was a technical issue or you left the page before it finished uploading. Unfortunately, we have already picked the images that will be included in this calendar project. We will be sure to have other contests and projects in the future that you will be able to enter.

Thanks for your reply, it must of been some technical glitch because when I submitted the photos the page showed all of them as submitted , it showed the two your showing now plus the wildlife Bison photo I had submitted images versus the two I now see on the page. anyway thank you again for the reply.

UPDATE: We have made our final selection for the images that will be included in the four final calendars. We received hundreds of images from our members to be considered for these calendars. We have sent out emails to each artist that submitted artwork for this project to inform them of their status.

If you submitted artwork for consideration, you can check your status on our Theme Calendar page.
