About the RayMar Art Fine Art Competition
What began as an unusual contest idea in 2005 has evolved into a premier ongoing competition well received in the art community. The contest enables RayMar Art to recognize exceptional artwork and in turn, reward artists with substantial cash prizes.
Each month of the competition, an art professional selects and critiques 12 finalist paintings, including a monthly "Best of Show", from that month's entries. These finalists are posted by the 15th of the following month. At the end of the 12 months of the competition, a final artist judge chooses the 12 award winners from the previously chosen and critiqued 144 monthly finalists. The competition cash awards are:
1st Prize - $10,000
2nd Prize - $5,000
3rd Prize - $2,500
4-12th Prize - $1,000
The 12 finalists for each month and final award winners will appear in the Fine Art Studio Online's Newsletter. This newsletter is emailed to an extensive database of art collectors. Throughout the duration of the contest, monthly finalists' names and websites are displayed on RayMar Art's site so collectors may contact you directly. Previous years' winners also remain on our site for continued recognition.
We wish to thank every artist who participates in and supports RayMar Art's competitions. With your participation, RayMar Art fufills its ultimate mission -- to manufacture professional painting panels, encourage the development of artistic talent and inspire artists to achieve personal success through recognition of their work.
