32nd Chelsea International Fine Art Competition—Opens on February 1, 2017

Artists from across the globe are invited to enter the 32nd Annual Chelsea International Fine Art Competition. With a fierce dedication to promoting the arts and discovering and exposing new talent, the CIFAC continues its tradition of honoring selected artists and awarding prizes aimed at giving artists invaluable exposure to promote career growth and boost recognition.

“The Chelsea International Fine Art Competition is a wonderful way to keep your artwork in front of important museum curators and art experts. Stay connected to the international art scene through competitions, let others see your work, and have your work create a dialogue with other artists.”
—Angela Di Bello, Director, Agora Gallery

This year’s competition awards are valued at over $70,000 and are designed specifically to support our larger mission: to promote the spread of extraordinary and innovative art in our modern world and to ensure the future productivity and enhance the careers of selected artists. Aside from cash prizes, other awards include participation in the collective exhibition, magazine profiles, and valuable PR opportunities. A portion of the gallery’s proceeds from artwork sales will be donated to the Children’s Heart Foundation.

“Upon seeing my work displayed at Agora I was proud to be part of such a high quality and diverse exhibition…Winning the competition has affirmed my confidence in my works and direction as an artist. It has also made me realise that you need to seize the opportunities and engage with a broader artistic community.”
—Sue Howard, Australia, 2015 Selected Artist
