    Art Kudos is an annual international juried competition that serves to recognize and honor excellence in the visual arts.

    Each year a distinguished art professional is chosen to serve as the awards judge and ensure a diverse range of perspectives and expertise. For the 2014 edition Graeme Reid will serve as the awards judge. Mr. Reid is the Director of Collections and Exhibitions at the Museum of Wisconsin Art and has curated over 120 group and solo exhibitions.

    Horizontal images should have a width of 800 pixels or more, and vertical images should have a height of 625 pixels or more. Images must be in a .tif or .jpg format and in RGB color mode (not CMYK). Save your images with as little compression as possible (i.e. choose the best quality when saving your images) while maintaining a file size less than 1 MB (or less than 1000KB) for each image.

    Entry fee: $35 for 3 images.


    The competition is open to artists anywhere in the world, 18 years of age or older.


    Artists who are selected as finalists benefit from world-wide exposure in a year-long online exhibition. No commissions are taken for sales generated via the exhibition, and works submitted do not have to be available for sale. Sales will be encouraged, however, and artists will have the option to display their contact information beside their images.

    Cash awards totaling $4,500 will be distributed as follows: Best of Show - $1,200; Second Place - $1,000; Third Place - $750; Founder's Award of Distinction - $500; (3) Merit Awards - $250 each; (3) Honorable Mentions - $100 each.
