If you chase beauty like I do, you’ll love these March articles showing you the beautiful and diverse art entered from around the globe in the first annual World Art Awards, scored by 20 of the best galleries in the world, seen here:

Any sketcher, painter, digital artist, sculptor or photographer can pay a small fee and enter online images by April 30. They will be placed in the one of fifty categories where they have the best chance to win: Oil, acrylic, watercolor, charcoal, pastel, realism, impressionism, naïve, abstract, expressionism, human figure, animal, landscape, fantasy, surrealism, pop, portrait, self-portrait, political, erotic, cubism, floral, humor, spiritual, various photography, sculpture, digital, etc..

Five thousand dollars in cash prizes will be divided between 6 artists (highest votes) and all 1st to 6th Place winners (300+ total) will receive great press.

World Art Awards launches this year, a sister competition of the prestigious online art competition American Art Awards after 15 years of success.

The only difference is World Art Awards submissions are sent to the World’s 20 Best Galleries to score, while in American Art Awards submissions are sent to USA’s 20 Best Galleries to score. Same categories, same prizes, same press and same opportunity that one of the revered art institutions is so taken by an artist’s work that they contact them for representation.

Below are brand new submissions from talented artists. Feel free to browse their sites or contact them if interested in buying their work, which may turn out to be a World Art Awards winner in late June, or American Art Awards winner in late October.
