Beautiful Bizarre Magazine Art Prize 2018

 

Sponsored by Trekell Art Supplies

 

We are proud and incredibly excited to announce that entries are now open for the Inaugural Beautiful Bizarre Magazine Art Prize!

As a leader and advocate for the arts, Beautiful Bizarre Magazine champions emerging and mid career artists. In the 5 years since our launch, Beautiful Bizarre Magazine has proudly become – a voice, a tribe, and a platform – for creatives whose work doesn’t always fit neatly into the traditional fine art “box”. In keeping with our mission, the Beautiful Bizarre Magazine Art Prize seeks to inspire creatives from around the world to pursue a life and career in the arts, and to help careers grow through our exposure of their work to our tribe of creatives, curators, gallerists and collectors.

The Beautiful Bizarre Magazine Art Prize provides an opportunity for traditional 2D + 3D artists to participate in the prestigious annual Beautiful Bizarre Magazine curated exhibition, win cash prizes, amazing Trekell prize packs, and most importantly receive worldwide exposure!  We welcome entries from all artists working in the mediums of: Painting, Drawing, and Sculpture [including embroidery and art dolls].

The 20 short-listed finalists will receive extensive international promotion through Beautiful Bizarre Magazine’s email marketing, social media marketing [over 850,000 followers] and website, ensuring the widest possible exposure.

From the finalists, three winners will be selected to participate in the Beautiful Bizarre Magazine curated exhibition ‘Ephemeral’ at Modern Eden Gallery along with an incredible line up of over 70 of the best contemporary artists from around the world. Click here for further details on the ‘Ephemeral’ exhibition and participating artists.

One overall winner will be selected to also feature in the December Issue of Beautiful Bizarre Magazine.

Winners will be required to produce an original work in keeping with the theme ‘Ephemeral’, to be completed and delivered to Modern Eden Gallery in San Francisco by 5 September 2018.

If you have submitted your work to Beautiful Bizarre Magazine before, please also enter the Beautiful Bizarre Magazine Art Prize. This is a completely separate process to our usual submissions, with a different judging process and panel.
