Beautiful Bizarre Art Prize

Global exposure + over US$35,000 worth of cash & prizes to be won!

The Beautiful Bizarre Art Prize is an annual non-acquisitive international art prize that celebrates diversity and excellence in the representational visual arts. In all static mediums including Traditional Art media, Digital Art media, and Photographic media; and all styles from realism and hyperrealism, to pop surrealism and lowbrow. The Prize seeks to inspire creatives from around the world to pursue a life and career in the arts, and to help careers grow through funding and increased exposure of their work to galleries, collectors and media globally.

Giving the practices of representational artists validation and visibility, particularly in the commercial gallery and museum sector where it is still hard to get representation, is what the Beautiful Bizarre Art Prize aims to achieve. ~ Danijela Krha Purssey, Beautiful Bizarre Magazine

Much of the world’s top talent is producing artwork that publicly funded institutions would not support with grant money. Therefore it is vital for these artists (including myself) that prizes like this exist! – Steve Chmilar, 2018 Beautiful Bizarre Art Prize Honourable Mention
