Who May Enter
Any of the WAA member artists who have completed and published their WAA Gallery pages may enter. (We don't accept non-members' artist and artwork for the WAA International Art Competition 2021.)
The WAA Annual International Art Competition is a membership competition held by the WORLD ASSOCIATION OF ARTISTS™ ℠ ® in the USA. This competition is aimed at encouraging our gallery artists to emphasize and develop the Unique Art Language in their work at all.
When a Member submits his/her self-portrait, three (3) own artworks, an artist bio, and artwork information for reviewing and evaluating, and he/she also builds (publishes) his/her self-portrait and at least one (1) own artwork (with an artist bio and artwork information) for the WAA Gallery, the submission will automatically participate in the WAA Annual International Art Competition after completing his/her gallery page*. The WAA will notify the final winners through their emails and post the winners list and their artworks on the WAA Competition site and/or social media websites. The WAA will also issue the official WAA Winner Certificates to all winners on the WAA website.
When an artist joined the WAA, if only providing three links of work (without submitting self-portrait, three (3) own artworks, an artist bio, and artwork information for reviewing and evaluating), he/she will not be eligible to participate in the WAA Annual International Art Competition. In addition, if an artist has registered for the WAA membership, but he/she has not submitted his/her self-portrait, artworks, and others by the deadline. He/she is not eligible to participate in the competition. Therefore, the competition deadline is not the due date to register for the WAA membership.
