We're looking for the very best in contemporary imaginative realism, with artworks being judged from four main categories - Traditional Painting, Digital Painting, Drawing and Sculpture. We offer cash prizes, as well as publication in our upcoming Compilation art book - Infected by Art Volume 6. The best images voted on by our esteemed jury will be selected for the book. While our jury deliberates on the artworks after the submission period ends, all submissions will be available for viewing by our site visitors to enjoy. The competition is open to all artists, and submissions should be created within the last 2 years. Entry fees will remain the same as previous years - $10 per entry with a maximum of 10 entries, and the 5th and 10th entry is free.
