** Note: TERAVARNA doesn't promise entrant artists to win a prize in money or money's worth in any of its competitions. Instead, only artists selected by an independent jury from a pool of applicants will be eligible to receive professionally designed 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.


The entry fee for participating in the open art competition is $15 per artwork. Please note that the entry fee is non-refundable. 

If you wish to submit more than ten artworks for consideration, kindly fill in your details, and submit again.
