Artists possess a powerful tool to evoke social change. Without uttering a single word, they can enlighten, educate and affect change around the world. Embracing Our Differences invites you to participate in creating a society where diversity is embraced and individuality is celebrated.
Become a part of this change by submitting your original art to Embracing Our Differences and its annual international outdoor juried art exhibit. Featuring 50 billboard-size images measuring 16 feet (5m) wide by 12.5 feet (4m) high, each work of art is created by local, national and international artists reflecting their interpretation of the theme "enriching lives through diversity and inclusion".
Your original art may be any size and medium; however, you must create or scan and submit it as a high-resolution digital file. Your digital art must measure no less than 12.8” (325.12 mm) wide by 8.8” (223.52 mm) high, or if larger, it must contain the same proportions. All art must have a horizontal orientation.
There is no entry fee.
Open worldwide to artists, photographers, professionals, amateurs, teachers and students.
A total of 3,000 USD will be presented in the form of three separate awards – 1,000 USD each for “Best-in-Show Adult”, “Best-in-Show Student” and the “People’s Choice.” Both “Best-in-Show” awards will be granted by a three-judge panel of art professionals. The “People’s Choice” award will be determined by visitors to the exhibit.
The 2022 exhibit will be on display from January 15 through April 10, 2022 at Bayfront Park in downtown Sarasota, Florida, USA.
Deadline: October 6, 2021
