Our 3rd Edition of the ART EMPIRE AWARD invites international artists to share their visionary abstract works with us. We are curious about your submissions and can’t wait to see your work!

Three artists will be honoured by our jury with the ART EMPIRE AWARD. Up to 20 works of the winner of our 1st Place will be presented with a solo show in our next 3D online exhibition ”VISIONARY ABSTRACT“.

The 2nd and 3rd Place winners, along with the 1st Place winner, will be published on our website with a personal artist interview and are of course the main part of our overall art award campaign.

In addition, three works of the awarded artists will be included in our FINALIST GALLERY on our website and offered for sale. As an artist you will receive the full proceeds of each sale. Of course, all publications include direct links to the artists‘ websites and social media accounts.

In a further step, a selection of the participants‘ submitted work will be published on our INSTAGRAM.
