OTHER FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS 

 

WHEN DO I FIND OUT IF I WON ?

The galleries and museums see and score your art in August, so by the middle of September we have tabulated all scores. If you are one of 300+ winners, we will email you by September 22 to let you know. 50 categories of winners are then revealed to the media one category at a time, like this.

DO I STILL OWN MY IMAGE ? CAN ANYONE STEAL IT ?

Any image you send us remains your property but for your benefit we will post it on our site and with online news as well as in a YouTube movie. We do this with low resolution images which look great online, but they do not print well, so in this way we do our best to protect you from anyone stealing your work. In other words, the images we will have will be similar to the quality you have on your own site, so we do not increase the risk of theft.

WHAT ARTWORK CAN’T I ENTER ? 
 
You may not enter an artwork which has previously won an American Art Award.
 
WHAT DO ARTISTS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THE AMERICAN ART AWARDS ?

WHY IS THERE A FEE ?

Your fee goes to our cash prizes and administrative costs:
We will email you back with verification of your submission information.
We will send your art images and contact info to all voting galleries and museums (plus they may contact you to discuss representation [no guarantees]).
We will email the results to all 300+ winning artists and issue an international press release to 597 publications naming the 6 cash winners, and distribute 100 articles to over 100,000 galleries, collectors, artists, and or viewers of online art pages.
We will create 50 to 100 articles to promote winning artists.
We will post these articles to hundreds of Facebook art groups accessible to millions of members.
We will post winning art images and artists’ contact info on our site.
We will produce a MOVIE for YouTube starring all winning art. 
 
 

 
 
DO THE VOTING GALLERIES AND MUSEUMS GET PAID ?
 
No. The galleries and museums that participate love art and support new artists. All want to see new art and some want to discover new talent.  

DO ALL GALLERIES AND MUSEUMS REALLY GET MY INFO AND ART ?

All museums and galleries have committed to scoring all art, but we can not guarantee that all will. One year we had to remind one gallery 10 times to vote, and kept pushing back results until they did, but we cannot do that again. So if one or more galleries do not send in their votes by our 5th extended deadline/reminder, American Art Awards will vote for that gallery, if needed.  Here are the 2022 voting galleries/museums.
