Open call : Win a Fully Funded Residency & Exhibition Summer 2023



The Boynes Emerging Artist Award, an international artist-run art competition, is excited to announce its new partnership for the 7th Edition with Rural Residency for Contemporary Art (RUC), an art residency based in the Valcamonica Valley in the Italian Alps. This partnership will provide the 1st Place, 2nd Place and 3rd Place winners of this edition with the opportunity to participate in a month-long fully-funded artist residency where they will be able to reconnect with nature and their art, explore the mountains, history, culture, and nature of Valcamonica while enjoying the idyllic beauty and quiet of the mountains at villa RUC. As Italy’s first UNESCO world heritage site for its prehistoric rock engravings, the valley and surrounding mountains are rich with beauty and history.

Emerging visual artists of any nationality, age, religion, and sex are welcome to submit via the Boynes Emerging Artist Award’s website. All 2D & 3D artwork with any subject matter is accepted. Artwork must have been completed in the last five (5) years and must be the submitting artist’s own original work. 


In previous editions, the award has partnered with Blick Art Materials, PR For Artists, and NoceFresca to provide emerging artists with the best opportunities to enhance their careers and heighten their practice. Beyond the scope of each edition, the award’s platform aims to build a long-lasting community, supporting and promoting artists’ careers even after the winners and finalists are announced.

Third Estate Art's Quaranzine is open for submissions!

Artistic field:



Third Estate Art's Quaranzine is an online magazine that celebrates the connection between art and social justice. We began Quaranzine at the beginning of the pandemic to stand in for our usual variety shows and salons, and it has grown into a way for artists and writers to come together from all over the world to explore progressive ideas. Quaranzine: Volume IV is open for submissions now through February 28. Please send us art or writing with an underlying social justice theme, or any kind of activist work that you’d like an eclectic audience for. We’ll take submissions of stories, essays, Bandcamp links, visual art, artist talks, performances, instructional videos, comics, poems, and anything else that we can reasonably put into an online format. We publish new work every Sunday, and payment is $20.
