Artists. Your work is essential. It encourages critical discourse, challenges us to step outside of our comfort zones, inspires us, promotes cultural understanding, and so much more. Like we said, essential.

And because your work is essential, you should be paid for it. Fairly. At ArtPrize, we want you to make money. And one of the key ways our organization can support you in this goal is by making it as easy as possible to find a buyer for your ArtPrize entry.

That’s why in 2021, we’re teaming up with Miedema Auctioneering Inc. to create a platform through which you can sell your work. A platform that brings together all ArtPrize entries that are for sale into one branded, seamless buying experience — backed by a marketing push that encourages visitors to buy and educates them on the importance of supporting artists financially.

You’ll have the option to either participate in an auction, with a minimum bid, or establish your asking price and sell your work outright. No sellers fees, you keep 100% of the proceeds from the sale.

We know it takes courage to embrace the spirit of ArtPrize, to take risks and push your creative boundaries, to create innovative and ambitious work in front of one of the largest contemporary art audiences in the world.

Let us help you get paid for taking that leap.

Artist registration for ArtPrize 2021 will be open from April 19-June 10. Sign up by April 25 for a 50% discount on your registration fee thanks to community supporters. We’ll share more details with registered artists in the coming weeks about how to sign up to sell their ArtPrize entries.
