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!

Two Artist Resources that Defy Categorization: Works.io and Art360 Gallery

From first view, the Art365 Gallery website has the look of an online art magazine, IMO. Although they refer to themselves as both an online art gallery and an art blog. You’ll find Featured Artists, Galleries, Glass Artists, and Art News.

Visual artists and glass artists are invited to submit for a permanent spot on this site.

РSend  a text in 300-500 characters about you, your artworks and perhaps a few words about your art technique.

– A link to your website/Facebook page.

– 6-8 quality images of your art.

They will rewrite a unique text about you and your art, show the best of your artworks and link to your website and Facebook fan page from their art blog (it‚Äôs a 100% free service). You’ll find the full details on their website.

Works.io is a sophisticated artist driven platform with a professional portfolio and CV tool for emerging fine artists to create online visibility.

Works.io is something like an artist directory, yet, when artists sign up for free they have a dashboard allowing them to add images of their art, their exhibition news, and more. Works.io also offers a monthly selection of emerging artists with more extensive text about each artist showcased. Works.io selects sophisticated art in low-key tones for their feature.

These relatively new sites have been added to our 57 page e-list of art magazines, blogs, and artist directories.
