Opportunity Description

International Deadline: January 9, 2018 – Art is a powerful tool to evoke social change. Without uttering a single word, artists can enlighten, educate and effect change around the world. Embracing Our Differences invites all artists to be a part of this change through your submissions to its 15th annual outdoor art exhibit celebrating diversity and inclusion.

Artists, photographers, professionals, amateurs, teachers, students – everyone can participate. 15 artists will be selected and national and international submissions are encouraged. The exhibit will be displayed April and May 2018 in Sarasota, FL USA.

Since 2004, the exhibits have been viewed by more than 2,400,000 visitors.

Final selections will be made by a three-judge panel of professional artists, curators and art professionals and based on artistic excellence and originality in the reflection of our theme “enriching lives through diversity.”

$3,000 (US) in awards will be presented.

There is no submission fee nor limit on the number of entries.

Submissions must be submitted online or postmarked no later than January 9, 2018.

Embracing Our Differences is a not-for-profit organization that uses the power of art and education to expand consciousness and open the heart to celebrate the diversity of the human family. It accomplishes this through an annual, large-scale outdoor juried art exhibition and a comprehensive series of educational initiatives, programs and resources designed for teachers and students.

We believe that diversity is one of the world’s greatest assets. To realize the promise of diversity, we must ensure that everyone is respected, included and valued for his or her individuality. Our goal is to create a community where diversity and inclusion are honored while teaching the importance of being an “up-stander,” and not a “by-stander.”
