Exclusive Art Competition for Emerging Artists on ArtSquare

Screenshot 2016-03-18 at 11.05.16 AM

At ArtSquare they know how important it is for artists to have high-resolution images of their artwork– it’s essential for selling online, making prints, submitting to magazines, etc.

Any artist can sign up for a free portfolio and start getting their work organized and resized, even if they do not have their work digitized by ArtSquare.

The ArtSquare website is a platform for artists to easily connect with professional photographers for creating high-resolution images of their art. ArtSquare has vetted photographers in their local area and are working to make this process easier than it’s ever been. They’re currently in over 60 cities across the U.S. and when there is an appointment request in a new city they can open there in 2 weeks or less.

After an artist’s appointment with one of our photographers they receive their image files in their own free ArtSquare cloud storage portfolio. Each time a high-resolution image is uploaded, the artist portfolio automatically creates 7 different JPEG versions optimized for different common purposes.

ArtSquare LOVES finding fun ways to promote the work of ArtSquare artists…so they’re hosting their first online competition. Any artist with an “Emerging” Portfolio Plan¬†can submit to be part of the competition for free.

They’ll choose a winner on April 20th and the winner will get their artwork printed on a run of T-shirts by TeeSpring. ArtSquare will create AND promote the TeeSpring campaign, TeeSpring takes care of shipping, and the winning artist keeps all proceeds from T-shirt sales and retains all rights to their artwork.

All you need to do for a chance to make money from your art on a T-shirt is:

  1. If you don’t have an Emerging Portfolio Plan, click here to upgrade.
  2. Go to the competition submission page by clicking here.
  3. Follow the submission instructions and after a few minutes you’ll be entered in the competition.
  4. Sit back, we’ll let you know if you win and then do our best to sell as many T-shirts for you as we can– then you get paid ūüôā
Upgrade to Emerging Plan

We hope to see you in the competition. Stay tuned for more opportunities to get your artwork out in the world– much more to come over the coming months!

Artists and artist assistants continue to contact us for e-copies of our International Art Gallery list PDF

Photographic Artists and their assistants like our new 2014 Photographers Resources to International Photography Reps and agents + much more-find it here.


We also received an email inquiry regarding our numbers of followers–

The Artist Marketing Resources blog has over 44,000 followers, our LinkedIN group also named Artist Marketing Resources has over 3,000 members.

We are at the maximum number of followers on Google+, and our Twitter accounts have 8,000-12,000 followers per account–@TransArtGuide ¬†@Artozon¬†@MarieKazalia @Transmediartist and other Twitter accounts that we manage.

An assistant to one artist wrote and asked “if you are so popular why do you have so few likes on your Facebook page?”

That’s a good question. The reason is that I started The Artist Marketing Resources Facebook page back in the days when Facebook made many FB formatting changes, destroying my layouts and work! ¬†I became disenchanted with FB and did nothing for the page for a couple of years, instead concentrating on interactions on my blog and in my LinkedIN group. So now, I am working to re-active The Artist Marketing Resources Facebook page–Please follow and LIKE!
