Interested in having your art seen and promoted in the form of a gorgeous online portfolio article? Artsy Shark specializes in showcasing the talents of artists from all over the world. The opportunity to become a featured artist happens only a few times each year, and this is your chance to apply! Deadline is June 20, 2019.

We need 48 artists to feature and promote during the coming months. 2D and 3D artists in all mediums are encouraged to apply, including: painting, drawing, sculpture, digital art, collage, photography, mixed media, clay, fiber, glass, wood, printmaking, metal and others.

As a featured artist, you tell your artist story, share your inspiration, and describe your technique in your own words. Select your best portfolio images for a compelling visual display that draws attention and interest in your work. A link to your own website in the feature drives online traffic and increases the opportunity for you to make sales, capture email addresses of interested visitors, and gain social media followers.

We promote every featured artist heavily through social media and email to our wide audience. Every article is permanent, and always shareable; see previously featured artists by visiting our Featured Artist Gallery. Since 2010, Artsy Shark has promoted more than 1,300 amazing artists and their portfolios to the world.

Artists apply in a competitive jury process, with a fee of $25. Not all artists will be selected. Our jury process includes reviewing each applicant’s website or other online presence. We notify all applicants within three weeks of the deadline with results.

In addition to publication and promotion, featured artists receive a customized “magazine style” version of their feature in PDF format to use as marketing collateral.  See a sample PDF here

Artsy Shark receives no fees or commissions whatsoever for any sales or contracts that result from being featured.
