We do art contests
differently.


Artit designs and hosts art contests with a real commitment to
supporting artists and their work. Staying true to our values.

 merit-based processes

We strive to provide equal opportunities to artists. Our contests are judged by panels of expert critics from diverse disciplines and backgrounds.
 transparency

We believe that transparency is essential for trust. We are a small team that cares about the quality of our processes and how we communicate them to our audience.
 active listening

We care about our artists' experience with Artit. We are keen on constructive feedback and new ideas that help us improve.
 synergy

We initiate and thrive in collaboration, because synergy brings with it endless possibilities.





How It Works



Sign up for free and upload your favourite works into your Artit portfolio.
Tell the world who you are and what your art stands for.

There are always a handful of art contests and calls running on the Artit platform, to suit diverse artistic interests and practices. Pick the one that suits you.

Select your artwork that best matches the theme of your contest of choice and add a description that best captures the meaning or intent of the work.

Once the deadline for submissions has passed, our expert judge panel receives all contest entries and leads the selection process.

Winners are announced 30 days after submissions close. We publish the results on our website and social media, and send an email notification to winners.

Depending on the type of award, we may ask winners to verify their information required for post delivery. We send out awards within 30 days of verification.
