Artists interested in being featured and promoted by Artsy Shark are invited to apply now. The deadline for submissions is midnight on September 17, 2020.

Artsy Shark publishes individual portfolio articles that present a collection of work by each selected artist, and shares their story in their own words. A prominent link to the artist’s website appears in the feature headline. This drives web traffic directly to the artist for the purpose of making sales, capturing the email addresses of visitors, and gaining social media followers.

Artists are selected through a competitive jury process. There is an application fee of $25. This process involves reviewing each applicant’s website or other online presence. All applicants will be notified of results within three weeks of the deadline.

Artsy Shark has featured more than 1,600 artists since 2010. We promote all features extensively to our wide audience of readers and social media followers. Artist features are permanent, which means they can be shared on an ongoing basis. View past portfolio articles in our Featured Artists Gallery.

Featured artists will receive a customized “magazine style” version of their article in PDF format to use as marketing collateral, and to promote as press exposure.

Artsy Shark issues a Call for Artists only three times per year, and we encourage 2D and 3D artists in all mediums to apply. Mediums include: painting, drawing, sculpture, digital art, collage, photography, mixed media, clay, fiber, glass, wood, printmaking, metal and others.

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