Who may enter
The competition is open to anyone.
Artists, professionals, amateurs, students are asked to submit their interpretation of the theme “enriching lives through diversity and inclusion.”
“ Artists possess a powerful tool to evoke social change. Without uttering a single word, they can enlighten, educate and affect change around the world. Embracing Our Differences invites you to participate in creating a society where diversity is embraced and individuality is celebrated. Become a part of this change by submitting your original art to Embracing Our Differences and its annual international outdoor juried art exhibit.
Featuring 50 billboard-size images measuring 16 feet (5m) wide by 12.5 feet (4min) high, each work of art is created by local, national and international artists reflecting their interpretation of our theme “enriching lives through diversity and inclusion.”
Your original art may be any size and medium; however, you must create or scan and submit it as a high-resolution digital file. All art must have a horizontal orientation.
There is no limit to the number of pieces of art you may submit.
