The Desire International Call For Artists by ArtAscent is now open. The competition theme is “Desire.” Emotional, physical, imagined desire. Global desire. Intangible desire. Consequences of desire. Show us what desire means to you.
Entries may include 2- and 3-dimensional media, such as paintings, drawings, photography, mixed media, installations, ceramics, jewelry and sculpture. Submissions must be the original work of the entrant(s). Open to Canadian (except Quebec) and U.S. residents.
All work is evaluated based on the vision as relates to the submission theme. Submissions including diverse interpretations of the theme will be considered. The beauty of art is that 100 artists can look at the same thing and interpret it in completely unique ways. That’s what can make it breathtaking. When you enter the competition, there is an ‘artists statement’ portion where you can provide context for your art and briefly explain how it relates to the theme.
The Gold, Silver and Bronze artist winners will be featured in the ArtAscent Art & Literature Journal complete with artist profile reviews. The Gold artist winner will receive $100. 20 artists in total will be published in ArtAscent Art & Literature Journal including links to your website, promotion on ArtAscent website artist directory, and exposure in social media.
The mission of ArtAscent is to promote artists of images and words, and connect them with art lovers. This is accomplished by calls for artists and writers, art magazine publication, and artist and writer directories. Each call is theme based, with the intent to showcase diverse creative explorations of that theme via various media.
