Women Artists

This is for women artists, and is open to many different media. If you feel this group does not represent you, please consider entering your work in the LGBTQ+ category if that is more appropriate, or any of the other groups of art and artists that you wish. Artwork can also be entered in more than one category.

If you are a Viewer and visitor, please take a look below at some of the art that has been created in the 9 counties of the Bay Area in this first ever regional series of art prizes. There are other categories you will find very interesting, please visit this one and all the others as well.

And if you are a viewer, please consider donating a tax-deductible donation or perhaps purchase a print from some other Bay Area artists who want to sell some of their work to help fund this first ever regional Prize for Art!

If you were an artist and participated in the Prize, you could have signed up and then uploaded up to six of your works of art for $10 each. Your work would have been placed immediately up on this website for everyone to see, in one of more of the juried categories. Your work would then have been eligible for a Winning Prize or Honorable mention. As well there are 2 voted awards which your work would also be eligible for!

Each category is awarded separately. There will be a winner at $500 and 5 honorable mentions at $100 each, per category for a total of 72 prizes! Each artist is eligible for one award per category. The Winner and 5 Honorable Mentions will be announced here as soon as possible after November 14! Please also come back after that date to see the results!
