Supporting Emerging Artists

Contemporary Art Awards is four years young and aims to support emerging artists by gaining valuable experience through our services and knowledgable staff. We provide mentoring, editing and writing services, as well as showcase artists through online solo exhibitions, curated group shows and a biennial art award. 
Our award, sponsored by Dynamic Events and Fix8 System, has given over $20,000, in cash, products and services and our vision is to increase this amount in the near future. 
The award does not restrict entries by category and welcomes all mediums including painting, works on paper, new media, photography, ceramics, sculpture, illustration, installation, and more. The objective is to provide ongoing support not only for the winners but for all selected finalists. The award is externally judged by industry professionals with the overall winner receiving awarded a $3,000 non-acquisitive cash prize sponsored by Dynamic Events, a $1,500 voucher sponsored by Fix8 Systems, a six-month Mentoring Program (optional), and an art review written by one of our art writers. 
We will continue to showcase emerging artists providing an opportunity for audience members to view and buy contemporary art.

Why the Award was Created 


  • To create an award that is easier to access no matter the location

  • To create an award for all mediums

  • To help build the artist's CV and aid their future careers

  • For artists to gain public exposure via online rather than rely on gallery attendances

  • To lower the artist's cost of exhibiting their work

  • To help artists in their early careers through guidance, advice, and support
