Emerging Artists Competition: Call for Entry

Arts for Rural Texas (ARTS) recognizes the artistic vision and ingenuity of the community’s youth. At the end of every summer, the organization hosts its annual Emerging Artists Competition, showcasing the best of rural Texas' creativity. The competition promotes hard work, nurtures confidence, cultivates self-discovery, and provides an opportunity for teens to display their work at the ARTS Ross Gallery.


ARTS invites students grades 6th -12th to submit up to two original artworks in the competition. There are six categories of work: Drawing, Painting, Photography, Mixed Media, Three-Dimensional (sculpture, jewelry, etc.), and Other (digital, fiber, etc.). Ribbons and $5,000 in cash prizes will be awarded!


The deadline to enter is Friday, July 26th at 4 PM. A complete list of rules, important dates and deadlines, and entry forms can be found at www.artsforruraltexas.org/emerging-artists. For questions, please email artists@artsforruraltexas.org or call (979) 378-2113.
