the art edit self represented artist award

At Art Edit magazine, our mission since inception has been to help artists find new, appreciative audiences in the pages of this magazine and among Art Edit’s digital readership. Yet so much of the artwork that crosses our desks every day deserves still wider recognition, most particularly from curators, gallery directors and public art institutions. This is why, in October 2020, we launched The Art Edit Self-Represented Artist Award. Now in its third iteration, the award has seen winning and finalist artists gain recognition from industry leaders and contemporary art collectors.
