Embracing Our Differences, juried annual international art exhibition and competition, has been recently announce for entries in its 2024 edition and like every year invites all artists to submit their interpretation of the theme “enriching lives through diversity and inclusion.”
Embracing Our Differences is an annual art exhibition and competition, recently announced for entries in its 2024 edition inviting all artists, photographers, professionals, amateurs, teachers and students to submit their interpretation of the theme “enriching lives through diversity and inclusion.”
Artists possess a powerful tool to evoke social change. Without uttering a single word, they can enlighten, educate and effect change around the world. Embracing Our Differences invites you to participate in creating a society where diversity is embraced and individuality is celebrated. The mission of Embracing Our Differences is to use the arts as a catalyst for creating awareness and promoting, throughout their communities, the value of diversity, the benefits of inclusion and the significance of the active rejection of hatred and prejudice.
Final selections for inclusion in the exhibit will be made by a three-judge panel of professional artists, curators and art professionals based on artistic excellence and originality in reflection of the theme.
Judges will also consider:
➜ How effective the art will read when enlarged to billboard size (16 feet (4.9 m) wide by 12.5 feet (3.8 m) high) and displayed outdoors.
➜ Is the theme clear and easily understood?
➜ Does the art explore the theme in an unusual or previously unexplored manner?
➜ Will the art and its message prompt discussion?
The winning artworks combine a deep understanding of both medium and message.
Embracing Our Differences every year features billboard-size images and this year exhibit will be on display mid-January through late May, 2024 in three locations in Southwest Florida.
Artists, photographers, professionals, amateurs, students are all invited to participate in this competition.
A total of $3,000 (US) will be presented in the form of three separate awards – $1,000 each for “Best-in-Show Adult;” “Best-in-Show Student;” and the “People’s Choice.” Both “Best-in-Show” awards will be granted by a three-judge panel of art professionals.
