Why enter ArtPrize?
ArtPrize is a place to go from idea to action. Artists from all over the world are welcome to experiment, collaborate and play out new ideas.
Artists have the chance to win $560,000 in prizes, the largest total purse for any art prize, chosen both by public vote and professional jurors. ArtPrize draws more than 400,000 people, from novices to the art world elite. And there’s the chance to install a project in a diversity of urban venues, from an art museum to a laundromat.
How does this work?
First, register as an artist beginning April 22. You’ll create an Artist Profile and provide detail about your ArtPrize 2013 Entry. Artist registration ends June 6, 2013. Read more about Artist Registration.
Once your profile and entry are complete, it’s time to find a venue to show your work during ArtPrize. Venue registration runs from March 11 - April 11, 2013. Beginning April 29, Artists and Venues will be able to connect with one another on artprize.org. Each artist must secure a connection with a venue by June 20, 2013. Read more about Connections.
