Featured artists are profiled through individual portfolio articles that share their work and tell their story. More than 2,300 artists from around the world have been featured since we launched this site in 2009. Artists are selected through a Call for Artists that happens three times per year. Our current Call for Artists is open and accepting submissions until the deadline of May 23, 2024.

We encourage artists and makers in all mediums to apply, including: painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, mixed media, clay, fiber, digital art, collage, glass, wood, printmaking, metal and others.

Every published feature presents a collection of the artist’s work, as well as their story. Artists may describe their inspiration, technique, concept or accomplishments. A prominent link in each article sends readers to the artist’s website, providing opportunities to make sales, capture email addresses of interested visitors, and gain followers. Artist social media links are also shared in features.

Each artist is additionally promoted to our large following, through social posts, and email marketing. All artist features remain permanently on our site and always readable. View them in our Featured Artist Gallery.

Apply Now

All artists who apply enter a competitive juried process. Not all artists will be selected. There is a nonrefundable application fee of $25. The deadline to submit your application is midnight on Thursday, May 23, 2024.

The jury process includes a thorough review of each application. Image files are not uploaded, instead the artist’s website and online presence are reviewed to view their portfolio and published content. Applicants will be notified of the results of their submission within three weeks of the deadline.

In addition to publication and promotion, every featured artist receives a customized “magazine style” version of their feature in PDF format which can be used as marketing collateral.

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