call for entries
We are no longer accepting entries for the 2015 Art Kudos competition. The deadline has passed. Artists accepted into the online exhibition will be posted here on August 1st. Award winners will be announced with the opening on August 15th.
Art Kudos is an annual international juried competition that serves to recognize and honor excellence in the visual arts. Artists who are selected as finalists benefit from world-wide exposure in a year-long online exhibition (www.artkudos.com) and have the opportunity to win cash awards for their exemplary work.
A total of $4,500 will be awarded as follows: Best of Show - $1,200; Second Place - $1,000; Third Place - $750; Founder's Award of Distinction - $500; (3) Merit Awards - $250 each; (3) Honorable Mentions - $100 each.
Each year a distinguished art professional is chosen to serve as the awards judge and ensure a diverse range of perspectives and expertise. We are very pleased to have Charles Long serving as the awards judge for the 2015 exhibition. Long is an internationally exhibited artist with over forty solo shows and is also the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship, two NEA Grants, two Pollock-Krasner Grants and a Louis Comfort Tiffany grant. He is a Professor of Art at the University of California, Riverside.
The Art Kudos competition is sponsored by Artshow.com, a company that offers web-based services and resources for artists and arts organizations.
