Masters of Wildlife Art 2024, International Art Competition

Submit your best wild animal art and photography. We want to see mastery of your art genre and style, whatever it may be. 2D and 3D.

We embrace realism as fully as abstraction. We love loose brush strokes as much as highly detailed photographs. We live for finely crafted ceramics as much as mixed media experiments. We. Love. Art.

Submit your portraits, wildlife scenes, animal activism messages. Show us your wildlife in the air, land, and water.

This virtual exhibition is looking for the best expressions of wildlife art today. This is a field of art that is changing rapidly in the 21st century. Wild Heart Gallery's mission is to celebrate and elevate animal art in all art styles, traditional, experimental, and beyond.
