A selection of international open calls, art competitions, and opportunities for contemporary art-related competitions, art publications, prizes, exhibitions, awards, proposals, and grants for artists, writers, and curators
About Artist Opportunities & Call For Artists
This is a curated selection. We publish a selection of open calls from a pool of submissions and editorial research. Only open calls we believe offer meaningful benefits to applicants at different stages of their careers will be published. We email thousands of art practitioners weekly with selected opportunities. Make sure you are on our email list to be one of them.
Submitting your work for a call for Art, open calls, and art competitions can be tricky and taxing work. We at Arts To Hearts Project have been creating resources and opportunities for Artists for the past two years. We have so far organized over 8 editions of our International Call For Art. But, we don’t want you to ever feel limited in where you want to apply. Hence, every month we bring you a quick round-up of 5 hand-picked opportunities and art competitions for Artists.
1- “Emotion” International Open Call to Artists and Writers— ArtAscent
The artist’s and writer’s call for the ArtAscent Art & Literature Journal Emotion issue is now open.
Emotion fills, lifts, erupts, freezes, floods, and empties us. Are we emotions, or are feelings simply impulses that appear and disappear from our consciousness? Does emotion take us to a higher plane of existence or simply along a preprogrammed path? What are we without these feelings? How do we express them? What in our environment triggers them? Are they contagious? Share your interpretation of what is or inspires EMOTION.
ArtAscent is a theme-based publication and online exhibition that showcases artists and writers from around the world practicing a broad range of skills, including painting, illustration, photography, mixed media, ceramics, sculpture, textile, jewelry, printmaking, digital graphics, fashion, film, video, installation, performance, story writing, and poetry writing.
Entry Fee: Yes
2- Publication Opportunity for Emerging Artists- Friend of Artists
Apply to have your work considered in the art book, Volume 19, by Friend of the Artist. We are dedicated to elevating the work of emerging artists of all mediums around the world through our high-quality art books and caliber of exposure and are excited to partner with Vision Project for this volume.
This volume will be sent out to over 40 galleries and art institutions and available for purchase at Barnes and Noble and Amazon. Accepted artists will also have a written statement about their works by an arts writer and have a 4-page spread of their work.
Volume 19 will be juried by an experienced group of jurors including Haylee Barsky, Emie Diamond, Lidija Khachatourian

3- Call For Submissions To Queer/Trans Magic Magazine
Astral Cherry Healing Arts is announcing the call for submissions for the second issue of the Queer/Trans Magic Magazine! The zine is a growing collection of creative works that explore, honor, and transform lineages of queer magic & resilience.
The theme is Luxuria (Desire/Lust/Luxury/Excess). This edition asks: how do we nourish ourselves with reckless abandon? How do we reclaim and reintegrate our desire from suppression? How do we lavish in pleasure and play? How can we uproot and transform shameful and oppressive relationships to desire, lust, luxury, and excess into something completely new?
Erotic/NSFW creative works are welcome. No video/audio submissions at this time. Previously published work accepted. Contributors retain their creative rights and will receive a free digital copy of the magazine upon publication.
