CONTEST AWARDS

Several art contests may be held over the course of each year. During each calendar year, there will be 5 FINALISTS and 1 WINNER chosen for each of the Nine Categories/Themes that are listed and described on this website*:

  • AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL

  • HALL OF HEROES

  • SPIRITUAL AWAKENING

  • FOUNDING FATHERS

  • PICTURE PERFECT

  • DIGITAL REALISM

  • SCULPTURE COURT

  • INSPIRING ILLUSTRATORS

  • YOUTH GALLERY

  • "PEOPLE'S CHOICE" (This will not be a category in all our competitions. For some competitions, we may also accept votes from the general public, asking for their opinion on the "best in show" which will lead to a "People's Choice Award" in addition to the various category winners.)

*NOTE: The number of finalists and winners stated above assumes a minimum of 25 entries per category. If a category has fewer entries, it may result in fewer finalists, and could possibly only have a winner.  Also, since there is no entry fee or cost for participants, if a category receives no excellent entries, that category may have no finalists and no winner.
