(last additions on 04 January, 2020)

Palm Art Award (PAA) is granted to artists of all visual media, i.e. painting, graphics, digital art, fine art photography, installation artwork and sculpture. The competition seeks to attract in particular emerging artists complying with or even redefining standards of art excellence. Every applicant has to submit 3 artworks.
The competition includes a three-step selection process, viz (1) Preselection by the internal jury (Nomination), (2) Presentation Round, and (3) Award Selection. The competition will exclusively be held on the web.

In the run up to each annual cycle a careful preselection process will be performed by our internal jury. Based on that we invite all of the thusly selected artists by email.  

After receipt of our invitation email you can simply enter by email form: Just click here! Be prepared to submit the following data: Name, Address, Country, Website. Done this, please, send jpg-images (1200 pix referring to the length) and details (title, technique, size, year of creation) for your three artworks by email to info@palm-art-award.com. It is recommended that submitted works should be created within the last 8 years. It is recommended to avoid a submission the same artwork as presented in any cycle before. By submitting artwork you are agreeing the work is your own original work of the exhibiting artist and do not infringe the copyright or other intellectual property rights of any third parties.

PLEASE NOTE: A small one-time administration fee of 48 Euro is due upon application. There will be no further additional costs for the nominated artist. You will be provided with payment data right after application.
