Embracing Our Differences 2019


15th October 2018

Who may enter
The competition is open to anyone.

Artists, professionals, amateurs, students may submit art images on the theme "Enriching lives through diversity".

Embracing Our Differences invites you to participate in creating a society where diversity is embraced and individuality is celebrated. Become a part of this change by submitting your original art to Embracing Our Differences and its 16th annual international outdoor juried art exhibit featuring 45 billboard-size images. Each work of art is created by local, national and international artists reflecting their interpretation of our theme “enriching lives through diversity.”  The exhibit is displayed mid-January through mid-March each year in Island Park along Sarasota’s bayfront in Southwest Florida. 

Your original art may be any size and medium; however, you must create or scan and submit it as a high-resolution digital file. All art must have a horizontal orientation.

A total of $3,000 will be presented in the form of three separate awards – $1,000 each for “Best-in-Show Adult”, “Best-in-Show Student” and the “People’s Choice”.
