Artists Wanted are currently hosting a new creative competition called “Self”, which is open for all types of creative works from artists worldwide.
One winning artists will be selected to receive $10,000 cash and lots of other prizes including an exhibition in the See // Exhibition Space in New York City.
The organizers are looking to launch the story of one artist on the world stage. Whether your work embodies who you are, reveals an aspect of your personality, expresses your point of view, addresses your personal history/journey, and/or explores your unique identity, each artwork you create carries a part of your story. This is about you.
