| Theme: Portraits of people and animals tell such great stories. They evoke emotion. They suggest deeper meaning. They tell us about someone else, and maybe even ourselves. Sometimes they’re just beautiful. Or shocking. Or surprising. Share your PORTRAITS with words or imagery. | Eligible Submissions: Entries may include 2- and 3-dimensional media, such as paintings, drawings, photography, mixed media, installations, ceramics, jewelry, fabric, sculpture, photos of performance art, fiction, poetry, short stories and other written explorations (up to 1,800 words). Submissions must be the original work of the applicant(s). Apply using the online form. | About ArtAscent: The mission of ArtAscent is to inspire and promote artists of images and words.
