Call for Artists: ArtConnect | Artists to Watch 2021


You’re an emerging artist with something to say — and you want to get noticed? That’s what drives us at ArtConnect. We make it our mission to showcase exceptional contemporary art by up-and-coming artists so that you can take your work to the next level. Because we believe fresh artistic voices like yours deserve a chance to be heard. 


Front Page Promotion

Your art will take center stage on ArtConnect and get seen by over 90,000 visitors who come to ArtConnect every month — that’s a whole new audience of curators, collectors, and art lovers just waiting to discover your art.


Solo Magazine Feature

Stand out with a solo feature in ArtConnect Magazine. Winners will receive a dedicated page in our magazine to feature your artwork and a short artist interview there too; because we’re eager to let the world know who you are.


Curatorial Review

One of our exciting international guest curators will provide a short review of your work. This is where they’ll give their take on what made you stand out as an artist to watch.


Social Media

We share one project by each of the winning artists in our Instagram feeds where they will reach an enthusiastic international art community of over 26,000 followers.


Dedicated Newsletter

Winners are announced in a dedicated newsletter that goes out to more than 25,000 subscribers. Your artwork will land directly in the inboxes of our global audience of art lovers and art professionals.

How to Apply

Who can apply?

We welcome applications from artists at any stage of their career, based anywhere in the world — regardless of media or educational background. In short, anyone with artwork to share. So don’t be afraid to show us what you’ve got! 


Share 1-5 of your best artworks with us. Upload your work on ArtConnect’s platform with images or video links. Don’t forget the details: material, dimensions, year created, and a short text description. A small entry fee is also required to make your submission — more details about this below.


Selection Process

Outstanding artwork deserves to be seen by top industry experts. We believe the selection process should include many different voices, that’s why we invite an international jury of professionals from across the contemporary art field to join our jury.
