In the Wild International Art Exhibition

Applications are now CLOSED.

The Artist Lounge, sponsored by King House Gallery, is calling for entries for a brand-new edition themed "In the Wild". The competition gives artists across the world the opportunity to showcase their work, participate in a unique virtual exhibition, join an exhibition in United Kingdom in 2021, cash prizes, as well as getting participation certificates to strengthen their art credentials.

"In the wild you find what mankind should treasure the most. You see life, you feel fresh, you hear roars. It's nature on its finest form, on its original form, on its own skin. It's raw and beautiful - every single element of its composition." "In the Wild" invites all artists to share their artwork related to nature, from plants to animals, and everything wild in between. All visual art mediums welcome.
