Three Reasons Why You Should Enter

There are tons of reasons why you should get your artwork in front of the public. Here are three to consider. For these, I borrowed from Agora Gallery.

  • Confidence - Putting yourself in a position where your work is being judged requires a statement of confidence in your creations and even in yourself as an artist.
  • Deadline - Deadlines make the world go round. Having a deadline will push you to create your artwork and maintain your portfolio
  • Evaluate Your Art - When entering an art competition, you are forced to evaluate your work in an objective manner.

This sounds as though it will be a fun, fascinating show. Why not get your artwork out there for the world to see? You'll build confidence, look at your own work in a different light, and expand your portfolio.
