Jerry's New Year's Resolution Number Two: Share Your Art With Us

Enter one of our free contests and win!


If one of your New Year's resolutions is to get some exposure for your artwork, Jerry's has a great way to share it: Enter your artwork into one of our Free Art Contests!

Every year offer 10-15 art contests where you can win big and get some major exposure for your artwork. If you win, place or get chosen as an honorable mention in one of our contests, we will show your work on our website and social media outlets as well as right here on this blog. 

Winners will also receive major prizes. Often our contests will have winnings of $2,250 or more. And thats not all, we will also send fun items such as SoHo Boat bags full of products or various other grab bags of new and fan favorited art supplies and materials.

How to Enter

This year you can look forward to a variety of painting, pastel and sketch contests as well as our famous Self Portrait contest where you can send in a self portrait of yourself in any medium and you the fans pick the winners on Facebook. There will be many contests to choose from and enter. Find which one represents your artwork the best.

Entering is easy. Check up on Art Contest Page on Jerrysartarama.com to see when we are running a contest. Sign up and enter your artwork online where it will be judged either by our fans online, or by a panel of selected professional artists. Once winners are chosen, we will display the winner's paintings, sketch or creation online for the world to see! 

So, if you're looking for some good exposure to really kickstart your art career and get your work seen, enter it into a contest here at Jerry's Artarama.
