Beautiful Bizarre Art Prize 2021

Global exposure + over US$45,000 in cash,
services & prizes to be won!

The Beautiful Bizarre Art Prize recognises the most skilled, creative and unique contemporary artists within their category, as well as one extraordinary overall winner.

From the entries received, the 100 short-listed finalists [25 in each award category] will receive extensive international promotion through Beautiful Bizarre Magazine’s email marketing, social media marketing [over 1 million followers] and website, plus enjoying additional exposure through our partners, friends and supporters.

From the finalists, 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize winners in each award category and the overall winner of the 2021 Beautiful Bizarre Art Prize will be selected by the Jury Panel and announced in early September 2021. The winners in each award category, and the winner of the 2021 Beautiful Bizarre Art Prize, will be invited to participate in the prestigious Beautiful Bizarre Magazine curated exhibition ‘Animalia’ in October 2021 at Haven Gallery [Long Island, New York] alongside an incredible line up of over 70 of the world’s best contemporary artists from around the world.

As a finalist, my Instagram and website have been receiving interest from a wider audience. Invitations to new shows have also come from the publicity the prize provided. One of the most sought after things an artist can hope for is name recognition and for people to see their work more widely, and the art prize has done that for me. – 2018 Finalist, Ariel Bowman

This is the perfect opportunity for artists to get their work in front of both the Editor-in-Chief of Beautiful Bizarre Magazine and the Directors of Haven Gallery, plus connect with the 70+ artists participating in the Beautiful Bizarre Magazine curated exhibition.
