Visual artists in any medium who would like to submit their work for consideration to become a featured artist on Artsy Shark may apply between March 18-24, 2014. This is a juried submission process, and not all submissions will be accepted.

Each selected artist is featured in an individual article on Artsy Shark, sharing their story in their own words and presenting their portfolio. Each article also includes a prominent link to the artist’s own website.

Each featured artist article is emailed to thousands of subscribers, promoted extensively on social media, and seen by many of over 30,000 unique readers who visit each month. It then becomes a permanent part of the Featured Artist Gallery, which contains more than 400 artist features at this time.

Becoming a featured artist is an excellent opportunity to present your art and attract lots of traffic to your own website, where you can gain subscribers, social media followers, grow your network and make sales. Consider it an extension of your marketing efforts, and continue to promote your featured page for as long as you like.

There is a jury fee of $15.00 for each submission. Applicants will be juried through their websites and online presence, not through uploading images.

Within a few weeks after the deadline, all artists will be notified whether they have been accepted or not. No fees or commissions are collected by Artsy Shark on resulting sales of artwork.


Thanks to everyone who applied to become a Featured Artist.
