It seems that a lot of the focus of our society is on the youth, the Millennials and the needs of younger generations. At Fine Art America, we view artists and lovers of art as precious, no matter what their age. If you are an artist, and you are over 60 years old, there is an art contest you can enter that is only open to Baby Boomers and beyond.  Why not consider entering the competition, and get a chance to show off your work? After all, you have worked hard all your life, and you deserve a little recognition and attention.

Details about the Competition

The Artists Magazine Over 60 Art Competition is for any artist over 60 years old who is working in what the magazine called “traditional art media”, which usually means drawing with pencils, colored pencils, ink drawing, drawing with markers, pastel drawing or chalk drawing. Painting with acrylics, oils or watercolors is also acceptable. Mixed media, collage and fabric art can also be judged during this competition. The only type of art that appears to have been ruled out include film and other types of digital media.

The early-bird deadline for the contest is October 1, with a later absolute deadline of November 1. There is an entry fee of $30-$35, depending on when you enter the contest. Contestants must be able to enter their art online as digital files. Artists are able to submit as many entries to the contest as they want with the entry fee submitted for each work of art.

Ten contest winners will receive $250 and publication of their art in Artists Magazine as well as online, which could lead to some good exposure for the artist. The judges for the contest will be editors and writers of the magazine and will represent a judging panel who will vote via majority.

Other Important Information

If you are submitting a work for a contest through the digital file, please remember that the contest is not open to certain employees of the magazine or its advertisers and members of their families. The art that you submit as a contestant must be an original work and not copied from any other work or from any other artist, whether it has been published or not. Artists who enter the contest must be able to describe their work and their inspiration for the work in detail. The work of art needs to have a creation date and a title.

So, if you are a budding artist, or even if you happen to be a professional artist with many sold pieces, and you are over 60, consider entering your artwork into the contest. It will be good publicity as the magazine has thousands of subscribers and online viewers. If you are retired, and art is your hobby and passion, why not enter the contest and showcase your talents? Your talent may earn you some cash as well as recognition, and all artists deserve that. Take a chance and let the world see just how much talent lies in those experienced hands.
