Annual Fairies and Fantasy Art Awards 2013
I love art, particularly fairy and fantasy art. Since 2009 I’ve been holding an annual art competition, starting small with just one winner, then expanding to have different age groups and categories. Artists would enter their work based on a theme I chose for each year, and I would select the winners. You can see previous winners and details here – http://selinafenech.com/tag/annual-art-awards/
The 2013 Fairies and Fantasy Art Awards are going to be VERY different!
Choosing winners myself is so hard. I want to give everyone prizes and hate having to narrow down the entries on my own.
For the 2013 awards, Artists will no longer enter individual artworks for the competition. Artists can enter themselves and the winners will be chosen through popular vote. Check out the new prize categories and how to enter below.
Award Categories and Prizes
Round One- All eligible artists who have entered the competition will be listed with their corresponding links to their artwork and a sample image. Voting will be open to the public, after which the five artists with the most votes make it through to the next round!
Round Two- The five artists from Round One will each receive an Artist Spotlight and Interview here on my site, highlighting their art. Once the Spotlights are online (to help make a decision!) voting will be open to the public again to choose the grand prize winner- the Fairies and Fantasy Artist of the Year
Fairies and Fantasy Artist of the Year Prize
The Artist of the Year will be offered a licensing contract with my company Fairies and Fantasy!
