About Competition


Fusion Art invites submissions for the 8th Annual Black & White Art Competition for an online exhibition during the month of April 2024.

Both 2D and 3D artists, worldwide, are invited to submit their best art and photography using black & white & the nuanced shades in between.

Any subject matter and any media are acceptable for this competition.

The artwork can range from realism to surrealism to abstraction and artists, regardless of location or experience, are encouraged to submit their best representational and/or nonrepresentational art and photography.

There are different categories:

“Traditional” is open to the following 2D mediums: painting, drawing, pastels, inks, pencil, printmaking, encaustic, fabric, and mixed media.
“Photography & Digital” is open to the following mediums: analog photography, digital photography, digital photo artwork, digital painting, digital manipulations, digital collage, photopainting, vector drawing, digital mixed media (integrated art). Digital Art that is a derivative work, created from another original artwork, must be significantly different as to constitute a new original work.
“3-Dimensional” Art is open to the following media: relief, pottery, sculpture, installation, kinetic, and conceptual 3-D artworks created in metal, paper, wood, stone, fiber, plastics, glass, ceramics, or any other material which can be used to create 3-dimensional art. All 3D entries now require front, back and side views to be considered and properly juried.
AI Art is now acceptable for consideration in all Fusion Art competitions as long as it is categorized as AI. The artwork can be created with the assistance of generative AI and/or enhanced with AI tools. However, it must be created with using the artist’s own original artwork as a base. It can be enhanced using AI tools but cannot be 100% AI generated.

There are no size limitations on the artwork. Artwork does not have to be for sale to be entered into the competition.
