Competitions & Exhibits
The International Portrait Competition is open to all artists, members and non-members. The top fifteen finalists will be invited to exhibit their selected artwork at the prestigious The Art of the Portrait® Conference. There, finalists' work will be judged by a panel of leaders in the field of traditional fine art portrait and figurative art. More than $50,000 in cash and prizes will be awarded at the Gala Banquet.
Each year the Members Only Competition varies the categories and subject matter. Participants are eligible to submit up to one entry per category of their work for inclusion in the Members Only Competition. Top award winners will be chosen for each of the five categories. First place winners selected from each category will receive a limited edition giclée painted and will be acknowledged in The Art of the Portrait section of International Artist Magazine and The Art of the Portrait Journal.
This triennial competition invites women artists to submit figurative work for consideration to be included in an exhibit of outstanding contemporary and historic work. Over $15,000 in cash and prizes is awarded to the top 20 artists. Selected artworks are included in the full-color exhibit catalog and Portrait Society publications. The first Inspiring Figures competition and exhibit was opened September 12 and closed October 31, 2010.
