Short description

Passion To Perform is an international art contest that aims to recognize and reward outstanding emerging art talent.

Passion To Perform celebrates the interconnection between performance and passion, and aims to award winning entrants with meaningful compensation that can positively impact each artist's practice and encourage them to pursue their passion.

Through each edition of the contest, organizer builds a collection that reflects our ideals of excellence in performance and expressing passion in what we do.

Established in 2012, Passion to Perform is a competition with a mandate to foster the important contributions art makes to vibrant communities.

The objective, since the beginning, has been to support and encourage emerging artists from around the world and develop a world class collection of work representing these artists.
For this year's contest, artists were welcome to submit paintings, drawings, mixed media, sculptures and photography as entries to Passion to Perform.

Each artist can submit up to 2 entries. The panel of judges will initially review entries made through the online system. Following this, approximately 35 artists will be short listed. Only works that are short listed from the initial digital submission will be reviewed for final judging.
