Since the beginning of August our esteemed Jury Panel have been going through the entries of the 2021 Beautiful Bizarre Art Prize, and making the very difficult decisions. The overall quality of entries was, once again, exceptional!

We are deeply honoured by our community’s interest in the 2021 Beautiful Bizarre Art Prize, which focuses on contemporary art across the representational visual arts, in all static mediums including: Traditional Art media, Digital Art media, and Photographic media; and all genres from realism to pop surrealism and lowbrow.

The Prize seeks to inspire creatives from around the world to pursue a life and career in the arts, and to help careers grow through funding and increased exposure of their work to galleries, collectors and media globally.

The Prizes

From the 110 Finalists [yes we have increased the number this year – more news on this later], the Winners in each category, and overall 1st Prize Winner will participate in the prestigious Beautiful Bizarre Magazine curated exhibition at Haven Gallery along side 70 of the best contemporary artists from around the world.
