99 UK artists contest
This unique contest is the first of its kind! A ‘live’ online event in the art community. 99 UK ARTIST CONTEST is a competition to select 2 artists who will join the exclusive community of 99 World Artists from 33 different countries. The contest was launched on Christmas Day and we were inundated with applicants from all over the UK. The quality of the artwork has been amazing. The difficulty has been whittling down almost 400 applicants to a shortlist of 20 to go forward for the LIVE EVENTS.
This exciting event will feature the shortlisted artists presenting their artwork to an eclectic panel of judges, AND, a live audience who will also get their chance to vote for their favourite artists! Be part of this new and exclusive event! Come and join us live online and have your say as to who you think should go through to the finals!
Elimination Round Results
There were two elimination rounds conducted as a Live Event. Eighteen Artists presented their artwork to a panel of judges and an audience of more than 250 people.
Five artists were selected as the Final round on Sunday the 14th Feb.
The selection based on a combination of judges assesment and a public vote.
First Round Results
Initially, 192 of the successful applicants displayed their work on the 99 World Artists website. The public were invited to pick 5 artists of their choice.
In addition, an independent panel of jurors were selected to represent potential buyers of the artwork. They were asked to vote on their choice, to provide an unbiased view.
And finally, the artwork was viewed by an expert panel of judges that included art critics, art teachers, curators and a representative of the Arts Council, England.
