Have you ever considered becoming a featured artist on Artsy Shark? We are currently accepting applications. The deadline for submissions is midnight on September 12, 2019.

Forty-eight artists will be selected to be featured and promoted during the coming months. Visual artists working in all mediums are encouraged to apply. Mediums include: painting, drawing, sculpture, digital art, collage, photography, mixed media, clay, fiber, glass, wood, printmaking, metal and others.

As a featured artist, you have the opportunity to tell your story and share your inspiration. Explain your technique and concept in your own words. Images of your best work will be presented for a compelling visual display that draws attention and interest in your portfolio. A prominent link in the article will drive traffic directly to your art website. This 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. Our highly-ranked website has showcased the talents of more than 1,400 artists from all over the world for the past ten years. See previously featured artists by visiting our Featured Artist Gallery.

This is a highly competitive juried competition, with an application fee of $25. Not all artists will be selected. All applicants will be notified of the results within three weeks of the deadline.

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 artists being featured.
