Call for Featured Artists, Winter/Spring 2016

Artsy Shark is searching for 48 new artists to feature and promote in the coming months. Featured artists are juried through submissions, which are now being accepted. Deadline is midnight Eastern Standard Time on January 11, 2016.


Call for Artists January 2016 - Interested in becoming one of Artsy Shark's featured artists, with your own portfolio article? Submission are being accepted until midnight 1/11/16 at


Visual artists in any medium who would like to be considered as a featured artist on Artsy Shark may submit an application until January 11, 2016. This is a competitive juried submission process, and not all artists will be accepted.

Each selected artist will be featured in an individual article published on Artsy Shark which presents their portfolio and shares their story in their own words. A link in the subheader of each feature drives traffic directly to the artist’s own website, where they can gain subscribers and social media followers, grow their network and make art sales.

Every featured artist article is emailed to thousands of subscribers, promoted extensively on social media, and seen by many of over 35,000 unique readers who visit each month. It then becomes a permanent part of the Featured Artist Gallery, which contains more than 700 artist features at this time.

Artist features are permanent. The artist can use the link to their featured article for as long as they like and may consider it an extension of their marketing efforts.

There is a jury fee of $20.00 for each artist submission. Applicants will be juried by viewing the artist’s website and online presence.

Artists will be notified as to whether or not they have been accepted within three weeks after the submission deadline. No fees or commissions are ever collected by Artsy Shark on resulting contracts or sales of artwork.
