Arts and Kids Annual Open Art Competition

Arts and Kids has just announced that it is now accepting entries for its Annual Open Art Competition. The contest is open to everyone 17 years of age and under, and entry is free.

Everyone will receive an individual acknowledgement of their artwork, and will enjoy an equal chance of winning the contest, since entrants will be judged using age-appropriate standards,” stated Suzanne Lawrence of Arts and Kids, an organization dedicated to bringing the work of young artists to the public’s attention. “In the last ten years, we have awarded over $100,000 to talented artists, most of whom have never before entered–or expected to win–any type of artistic competition.”

Young Artists Have a Chance to Win $5,000.00 in Prizes! In addition to the 150 scholarships and prizes totaling $5,000 that will be awarded to young artists, a $500 grant will be awarded to the school of the Grand Prize Winner for art education, art supplies, or art-related technology.

Gain National Recognition Artists entering the contest will be featured on our website– Many of the artists will also be considered for publication in a deluxe, hardbound anthology. “Students love the opportunity to actually see their own artwork appear in print.
