The World’s Largest Art Competition

Open to everyone

If you’re at least 18 years old at the time of Artist Registration, you’re eligible to enter ArtPrize. Artists from anywhere on earth can participate. The entry fee is $50 for an individual artist and $100 per team for a collaborative entry. Learn More.

Enter almost anything

When you register, you’ll enter your artwork in one of four major categories: 2-D, 3-D, Installation, and Time-Based. Entries representing every artform and any medium are welcome at ArtPrize. Learn More.

Grants and prizes

ArtPrize awards $250,000 in prizes decided by public vote. In addition, grants—through programs like Featured Public Projects, Artist Seed Grants and Pitch Night—are awarded to participating artists ahead of the competition to support their ambitious entries. Learn More.

Choose your own venue

Unlike any other art event of its size, at ArtPrize, each venue is independently organized. ArtPrize doesn’t decided which artists display at most venues. If a registered venue agrees to host your entry, you’re in. Learn More.

Gain exposure to hundreds of thousands of people

ArtPrize attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors from all around the world to explore and experience artwork like yours on display throughout Grand Rapids, MI. Hundreds of thousands more visit the ArtPrize website and use the ArtPrize mobile app to view artwork online—and vote for the winners.

Sell your work

You can also let visitors know if your entry is for sale. Many potential collectors and fans inquire online about purchasing work, both during the event and beyond. More than a third of all artists sell their work.
