Self: A Creative Competition is an international, all-medium-encompassing open call for art and photography with the goal of uncovering the story of one artist to launch on the world stage.
Artists Wanted is looking for all types of creative works in photography, painting, sculpture, drawing, performance, video, installation, design, printmaking, and more — any medium that you use to express yourself as a creative person is welcome.
One artist will be selected to receive $10,000 cash, a printed inclusion in a limited edition SELF book, a published spread in Flash Art Magazine, an online feature published by Artists Wanted, and an exhibition in the See // Exhibition Space in New York City.
The jury panel will also select one artist to receive a $1,000 grant, an online feature published by Artists Wanted, and a printed inclusion in a limited edition SELF book.
And finally, one artist whose portfolio appears in the highest number of collections will receive an online feature and $2,500 cash grant.
Entry Fee: The fee to enter a Basic Submission is $25. Basic Submissions are only eligible for the People’s Choice Award. The fee to enter a Premium Submission is $50. Artists who submit Premium Submissions are eligible for all the prizes. Late fee applies to entries submitted after 31 May 2012.
