Skies Art Competition
For this competition, artists are encouraged to submit their best art and photography depicting the sky. The sky is everything that lies above the surface of the Earth, including the atmosphere and outer space. The theme includes any depiction of the skies, including clouds, rainbows, aurorae, lightning, precipitation and storms, stars, planets, moon, celestial events, the night sky, the day sky, dusk and dawn – just as long as the sky is the main focus.
The artwork can range from realism to surrealism to abstraction and all artists and photographers over the age of 18, regardless of location or experience, are encouraged to submit their best representational and nonrepresentational work.
- Cash awards will be given to the top three winners.
- The Best in Show winner in each category will be the “Featured Artists” on the website for the duration of the exhibition.
The fascination of black and white in art and photography is ever present. The use of these two extremes on the spectrum encourages us to focus on the composition and subject(s) within a given piece. Sometimes the simplicity of using only one or two colors is far more complex than using the full spectrum. For this competition artists are encouraged to submit their best 2D and 3D art and photography using black & white & the nuanced shades in between.
