Prizes

Global Exposure + Over US$20,000 Worth of Cash & Prizes to be Won!

The Beautiful Bizarre Art Prize 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 genres from realism and hyper-realism, 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 increased exposure of their work to the global arts community.

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

Plus, 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 50+ artists participating in the Beautiful Bizarre Magazine curated exhibition.

This experience was very meaningful for checking my position. The Japanese art scene is closed and I did not know how my picture was accepted in the world.I realized that my picture was evaluated like many artists, I gained confidence. And I hope many Japanese artists will try this award. – Kazuhiro Hori, 2018 Art Prize, 2nd Prize Winner.
