beautiful bizarre art prize entry deadline extended!

Once again, we’ve received many DMs and emails from our community asking for an extension to the Beautiful Bizarre Art Prize entries deadline. We understand the ongoing mental and emotional exhaustion that many of you are feeling this year, and as such, we have once again listened. Therefore, entries for the 2022 Beautiful Bizarre Art Prize will now close on Sunday 31 July 2022 at midnight [Los Angeles, USA time / 5pm 1 August [Sydney, Australia time].

Each year is a brand new art prize: a new jury panel, and a new chance to win!

This mass, international level exhaustion and anxiety can be easily overwhelming, and perhaps now more than ever it’s time to not give up on your art. The Beautiful Bizarre Art Prize exists to support artists at all stages of their career; with an easy submission process (you don’t need to create a new work, just enter the best work from your existing portfolio!) you can guarantee that your work will be seen by our Editor-in-Chief Danijela Krha Purssey. Why is this important? Because it isn’t just about winning (although that would be amazing) – the Beautiful Bizarre Art Prize is also our fountain of inspiration. Every year we discover many new artists through our Art Prize, who then go on to be featured on our website, our print magazine, and are also invited to our curated exhibitions. It is the best way to get on our radar!

To enter, just complete the relevant entry form in one of the four Award categories: Traditional Art, Digital Art, Photography or Sculpture.

Giving the practices of representational artists validation and visibility, particularly in the commercial gallery and museum sector where it is still hard to get representation, is what the Beautiful Bizarre Art Prize aims to achieve.

This is also the perfect opportunity to get your work in front of the Directors of Modern Eden Gallery, in San Francisco, USA. PLUS see your work published in Beautiful Bizarre Magazine, share in over US$57,000 in cash and amazing prizes, and of course receive global exposure for your practice.

Please note this will be the final and only deadline extension, so don’t miss your opportunity! We can’t wait to see your work!

Entry fee is US$40 to cover administrative costs. If you have any questions about the Beautiful Bizarre Art Prize, please don’t hesitate to contact us at artprize@beautifulbizarre.net

US$57,000 in cash & prizes to be won – with a Grand Prize of US$13,500 to the overall winner!
