ArtMaster Australia Announces Fine Arts Contest

Reading Time: 2 minutes

On the 5th of October 2016 the ArtMaster Australia Fine Arts Contest was launched by the HAIKUART Gallery on Facebook.

We believe this Monthly Fine Arts Contest will become the Premier online Australian Facebook Arts Event for all Australian Artists of visual mediums.

The ARTMASTER AUSTRALIAN Fine Arts Contest is unique in so much as the Artists, themselves, adjudicate their peer’s works plus receiving Public votes from visitors and art aficionados.

There are three main awards: 1) ARTIST’S CHOICE AWARD 2) PEOPLE’S CHOICE AWARD  3) ADMINISTRATORS AWARD for best emerging and established Artist.

We then add a ‘FIRST’, for Facebook competitions, by introducing an extra element of judging; the INTERNATIONAL JURY.

Twelve (12) of the Finest Artists from across Europe, Asia, USA and Australia will judge the Top 25 works from the Contest, awarding GOLD, SILVER & BRONZE Certifications to the best 3 artworks.

We are very honoured to have the talents and calibre of Artists such as: Steve Guest (AUSTRALIA), Ann Coutre Stray (USA), Immo Jalass (NETHERLANDS), Daniel Rivart (BELGIUM), Raghunath Raghu (QATAR), Bapuji Bathula (INDIA) & Emel Ozkan (TURKEY) to be part of our Jury.

The team at ARTMASTER AUSTRALIA prides itself on having some of the toughest verification requirements of any Facebook Art Contest currently online. We strongly believe that the Artist’s work, whether Analogue (Traditional) or Digital, must be respected and the Artist’s integrity honoured.

The Verification process uses a cache of sophisticated Forensic Art software. We check for Originality, Copyright breach, Copying, Landscape & Portrait Enhancements and manipulation. We also verify the Artist’s Identity with visual checks of existing Artworks in FB albums or websites. Every artwork uploaded to the Competition has a Copyright Seal embedded into the image so that the exhibited work is protected from copying or downloading for the purpose of creating derivative works.

This will be an exciting Contest and we thank Art Xtedia for acting as Art Patron for this event.

We invite all Australian artists to visit the Contest site and register for our monthly events. It is also a great opportunity for Australian Art to be exposed to a wider Global audience where artists can take the opportunity to test/showcase their art work, before entering major National or Local Art Competitions.
