We are always looking for artists whose work we wish to promote and support.
As we consider work for inclusion in CollexArt, we are interested in the idea and concepts behind your work and its execution. Factors such as prior accomplishments, education, creation date of the work are not relevant in our selection process.
What inspires our curiosity may be unique to us, and therefore, not being selected should not be seen as anything other than not a match for our current selection criteria and mix of reviewers.
CollexArt features the work of artists working in all visual media other than video or time-based media. We accept submissions from USA and International artists who wish to have their work considered for our Annual Grand Prize, Online Exhibit Space, the CollexArt Store and our Purchase Awards.
Submit a body of work, of at least 6 images, that share the same idea or concept and that you think represent you well as an artist. CollexArt will review your work to see if it is a good fit for our Exhibits and the CollexArt Store.
Our Vantage Point call does not have a standard deadline and is run continuously throughout the year. Each Vantage Point competitive call cycle is closed and then re-opened once we identify two new CollexArt featured artists.
Selected artists get their own in-depth Artist Profile Page, are invited to sell work in the CollexArt Store and/or in our Online Exhibits, are entered as finalists for the Annual Grand Prize, and may also win a Purchase Prize Award.
1. Purchase Award of $1000 - Artists are invited to enter artwork for consideration for the Purchase Award.
2. The CollexArt Annual Grand Prize of $5,000 - identifies a single artwork as the best of the year. This award identifies a single artwork as the best of the year.

Artists who are selected for Purchase Awards, Artist Profile Pages, Exhibit Space in CollexArt or for the CollexArt Store are registered as finalists for the prize.
