Artsy Shark is seeking 48 artists in all mediums to feature and promote in the coming months. We are currently accepting submissions. Deadline is March 17, 2022.
Artsy Shark showcases the talents of visual artists through individually published portfolio articles that appear on this site. Since 2010, more than 1,900 artists from all over the world have been featured. Artists are selected through a competitive process that happens only three times per year. Our Call for Artists is currently open and submissions will be accepted until the deadline of March 17, 2022.
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 and tells their story in their own words. Artists may describe their inspiration, technique, concept or accomplishments. A prominent link in each article sends readers to the artist’s own website. This increases the opportunity to make sales, capture email addresses of interested visitors, and gain followers.
Featured artists are promoted through social media to our large following, and also to our extensive list of email subscribers. Every artist feature remains permanently accessible on our site, and can be seen by visiting our Featured Artist Gallery.
Artists who apply to be featured enter a competitive jury process; not all artists will be selected. There is a fee of $25 to apply. The jurying process involves a thorough review of each application and artist website or other online presence. 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. See a sample PDF here
Artsy Shark receives no fees or commissions whatsoever for any sales or contracts that result from being featured.
