International Juried Art Competition
March - April 2023


ART SHOW INTERNATIONAL GALLERY announces their "5th COLOR" International Juried Art Competition. All visual artists from around the world are invited to submit their best artworks on the theme for inclusion in the exhibition. All types of art styles may be submitted, including both 2D and 3D works, painting, sculpture, digital, printmaking, fiber, photography, graphic, mixed media, as well as experimental and installation works.


​​The theme of this international juried art competition is COLOR. As humans, we see the narrowest range of wavelengths of the vast electromagnetic spectrum that lies in front of our eyes. But even that evokes indescribable feelings in us. Indescribable in words, perhaps, yet depicted in those very wavelengths we are privileged enough to see. Any subject matter holding a multitude of colors is acceptable for this contest. Artists are free to apply their own interpretation in representing the overall theme. Representational and abstract ideas based broadly on this theme, in any media, will be considered. See below for more details on submission guidelines. Please note that you must be 18 years of age in order to participate in any of our events.


​All types of visual arts will be considered, including but not limited to Painting & Mixed Media, Photography & Digital, and Sculpture & 3D Installation.



The deadline for submission is March 15th, 2023.

Awards & Prizes


Up to $1,800 in cash prizes will be given out to 45–75 winning artists.* The grant money will be unrestricted and may be used in any manner by the recipient artist. Depending on the number and quality of artworks submitted, the following prizes will be considered:

First Prize Award                $100 - 350

Runner-Up Prize Award  $75 - 250

Merit Prize Award              $50 - 150

Talent Prize Award            $25 - 100

Honorable Mention Award

Finalist Award

All award-winning artists, including Honorable Mentions and Finalists, will be given Certificates of Recognition.

*   In case there are joint winners for any of the cash prizes the money will be split evenly among contestants. Similarly, if a category does not receive enough entries to be judged fairly within that category alone, it will be considered alongside other categories with sufficient entries. The final prize amount will depend on the total number of entries but will always be within the indicated range.

*** If you're one of our cash prize winners, we will notify you at your registered email we have on file asking you to submit a form with your verified PayPal email address. The cash will then be transferred directly to your PayPal account approximately 3 weeks after this email notification. In the past, artists have had issues receiving prize money in new and inactive PayPal accounts, so please double-check that you’re correctly set up with your bank for money transfer. In case the transaction gets canceled or reversed by PayPal, or if PayPal doesn’t allow us to transfer the money to your account for any reason, we may be unable to facilitate a repeat transfer. Please remember to mark our email in your safe messaging filter and check your Spam or Junk emails regularly once the competition goes live so you don't miss out. We regret that any prize money not claimed by artists for any reason within 30 days from the start date of this exhibition will be forfeited. This is needed to allocate funds to support our continuing series of competitions and artist grants.
