The Chelsea International Fine Art Contest, has been drawing attention to the work of talented upcoming artists from around the world for more than 25 years.
The contest is hosted by Agora Gallery, a fine art gallery based in Chelsea, New York that is dedicated to the promotion of contemporary artists. The Gallery caters to the taste and trends of the sophisticated New York art market and the Gallery's discerning worldwide collector base.
The Competition is juried by important figures in the New York art scene; last year's juror was Megan Fontanella, Assistant Curator of the Guggenheim Museum. Artists from around the world, at whatever stage in their career, are invited to join the competition.
In addition to the recognition received by the selected artists, prizes valued at $38,000 are awarded. Prizes include participation in the competition exhibition in New York, cash, internet promotion and review by an art critic.
