With just 2 months left to enter the 2024 Beautiful Bizarre Art Prize, we would love to share more of the wonderful entries we have received so far! The Beautiful Bizarre Art Prize celebrates diversity and excellence in the representational visual arts, in all static mediums including Traditional Art media, Digital Art media, and Photographic media; and all genres from realism and hyperrealism, to pop surrealism and lowbrow.

The Beautiful Bizarre 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 funding and increased exposure of their work to galleries, collectors and media globally.

Would you like our Editor-in-Chief – Danijela Krha Purssey, who curates each issue of Beautiful Bizarre Magazine, and our exhibitions to see your work? If so enter today, she is personally going through each entry herself!

Note: AI Art not accepted], Photography [digital or analogue], and the Emerging Artist Award category [which is open to all mediums].
