Three Reasons Why You Should Enter
There are tons of reasons why you should get your artwork in front of the public. Here are three to consider. For these, I borrowed from Agora Gallery.
- Confidence - Putting yourself in a position where your work is being judged requires a statement of confidence in your creations and even in yourself as an artist.
- Deadline - Deadlines make the world go round. Having a deadline will push you to create your artwork and maintain your portfolio
- Evaluate Your Art - When entering an art competition, you are forced to evaluate your work in an objective manner.
One More Reason To Enter
Cash prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in each of the three age categories.
This sounds as though it will be a fun, fascinating show. Why not get your artwork out there for the world to see? You'll build confidence, look at your own work in a different light, and expand your portfolio.
