The International Art Contest
The International Art Contest caters for the
categories of Realism, Modern Art, Mixed Media (Sculpture) and
Digital Art. Since its establishment in 1998, the contest has
been revered by artists world wide as the most prestigious art
contest of all because unlike juried competitions, The
International Art Contest is judged by the artists themselves,
past and present, thus eliminating politics and other bias from
the selection of winners. Consequently, most consider that being
awarded First Prize by one’s peers as the greatest achievement
Entries for the 2015 art contest closed on July 14th and are on
display from August 1st and December 31st. All mature
professional artists are welcome to vote in all categories.

influence selection of the winners.

most welcome to vote again. Each member's votes are recorded and
their last vote displayed for that category.
