We thank all of the artists who submitted to the 2021 Grand Prize art call. We are excited to share that artists entered over 2300 artworks for review. Artists hailed from Argentina, Australia, Bangladesh, Belgium, Chile, Denmark, Finland, France, Georgia, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Iraq, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Korea, Macedonia, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Oman, Philippines, Poland, Russian Federation, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Switzerland, Thailand, Uganda, Ukraine, United Kingdom, and United States.
This call has no theme, but we are biased towards submissions that demonstrate a clear visual approach and consistency that is recognizably yours. This art call allows you to submit up to 20 images. All your entries are eligible for the grand prize award, but you must designate any work that should also be considered for the purchase award. Please know that it is better to submit 3 images that work well together and show your unique approach than 20 images that are not a cohesive body of work.
Open to all media except moving images (i.e. video, gifs, movies).
Artists who are 18 or older, of any nationality, working in original visual media (excluding video and other time-based media), are eligible.
One artist will be awarded the Grand Prize Award at the conclusion of this call.
One artist will be awarded the Purchase Award at the conclusion of this call (see previous winners).
12 artists will be awarded one year of FolioLink artist website service which includes the option for a discounted subscription after the first year.
Submitting artists (including the Purchase Award winner) may be invited to have their own in-depth Artist Profile Page, have their work included in the CollexArt Store and in the curated Online Exhibit Space.
The Purchase Award is intended to support the selected artists with meaningful recognition as part of the CollexArt Private Patron Collection. When submitting artwork to this call for entry, you can identify artwork for the Purchase Award and/or for CollexArt Exhibition.
The Purchase Award of $1000 will be given to one artist. If an artwork you tagged for the Purchase Award is selected for this award, you understand that the CollexArt Patrons intend to acquire your work for $1,000. Artists submitting for the Purchase Award should value their work in accordance with prior sales history or the amount a gallery would pay for your work without their commission fee added. Please note that it is possible that one person is awarded both the Grand Prize Award and the Purchase Award.
CollexArt pays for the shipping of all artwork acquired through the Purchase Award. In the case of an international acquisition, CollexArt Patrons pay for customs and importation fees.
To qualify for a FolioLink Website Award you must be a full time student or full time art teacher or art professor.
