Art Show Details

Complete results of the 2009 American Art Awards will be distributed to over 30,000 galleries, collectors, and artists.

The winner’s information and their art image will be up on the American Art Awards website for a whole year, and we expect a heck of a lot of traffic, due to Thom Bierdz’s upcoming publicity schedule. Gallery judges will also be notified of winners and given their contact information should they want to exhibit winner’s work.

All entries will also be entered into the “Best of Show” category. This will be one piece that will be named as “Best of Show” and will have added exposure in the media and online. The “Best of Show” artist will have the option of having his or her work offered for sale at one of the galleries judging the contest.

Promote Your Work as Award Winning: As a winner or finalist you will have the right to highlight your award at future gallery exhibitions, your website, and your printed marketing material. Award ribbons, certificates and stickers will be available for purchase for all winners & finalists in each category. Past winners and finalists of similar contests have utilized this award by creating and distributing their own press releases!
