2) There is no limit on the number of entries per artist.

VeniceLands ArtPrize







Submissions are now open for the VeniceLands ArtPrize.

Free submission | No entry fee for selected artists

Deadline: March 7th, 2019

The VeniceLands ArtPrize is an International Contemporary Art Prize that has a related Exhibition held annually in the Province of Treviso. This first edition will be held in May 2019.

The Exposition is diffused over the territory of Treviso, in several venues. A map will help the public and the artists travel the circuit discovering not only the proposed Art Operas, but also the beauty of the territory and its products. A jury of experts will award the first prizes to the artists, one per section, and a jury formed by the public will award a special prize to the selected artist.

In VeniceLands, artists do not send a box with their artworks, but they come with their artworks. They participate to the exhibition, meet the other artists, exchange opinions and emotions, design new works and - above all - they know and share everything with their audience. VeniceLands creates communities of artists.
