Paper Heart

International Juried Art Competition
June 2022

Come Celebrate With Us!

​June is celebrated as

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) Pride Month

in the United States and increasingly around the world.



"1st PRIDE" International Juried Art Competition

commemorates and recognizes the impact that

lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer individuals have had on art.

All profit from our PRIDE art competition will be donated to support the LGBTQ community

Art that captures the subject of LGBTQ Pride Month in any form 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.


Visual artists from around the world are invited to submit their best artwork on the theme for inclusion in the exhibition. All types of art styles may be submitted, including 2D and 3D works, painting, sculpture, digital, printmaking, fiber, photography, graphic, mixed media, as well as experimental and installation works.



The deadline for submission is on the last day of Pride Month, i.e., June 30th, 2022.

Note that our deadlines are firm and will NOT be extended



Awards will be given to multiple artists in several categories. However, we're doing things a little differently for this competition. Rather than cash prizes given out to individual artists, profit money from the competition will be donated to charities which support LGBTQ communities.

Depending on the number and quality of artwork submitted, the following awards will be considered:

First Place Award

Second Place Award

Third Place Award

Special Mention Award

All award-winning artwork will be displayed on ART SHOW INTERNATIONAL GALLERY's walls. Artists  will receive Certificates of Recognition and promotion via social media, monthly newsletters, and news media. At the conclusion of the art competition, winning artwork will be archived and considered for future publication as full page print and digital editions in leading art magazines.
