The Top 10 Reasons Artists Should Enter ACA 2013 – Art Design Consultants


The Top 10 Reasons Artists Should Enter ACA 2013

Posted on 17 April 2013

...apart from the $115,000+ and delicious food! ;)

This week we're taking a page from Letterman's book of late night television and doing our own version of The Top Ten List. The top 10 reasons artists should enter Art Comes Alive 2013 are...

10. Publicity Just for Entering

Artists often hesitate entering competitions like ACA because of the uncertainty their work will make it to the final exhibit. ACA is different. Every artist that enters work will be publicized for a full year by the host, Art Design Consultants. Your work will be showcased on their website, blog, and email blasts to over 10,000 contacts. cap2  

9. Reach Your TARGET Audience

 Our jurors work with private collectors, residential, hospitality, healthcare and corporate clients. If you feel your artwork falls into a certain “niche,” ACA has got it covered. Corporate Office Low Res  

8. Category Awards

There is nothing comparable to the pride you feel when you are awarded the artist of the year in your medium or subject. The check in your name doesn’t hurt either.



7. Networking

This is an amazing opportunity to meet the most prestigious names in the art business. Not only are our jurors and sponsors looking forward to meeting you, they want to see & sell your work! Building mutually beneficial relationships can make a long lasting impact on your career. 121129_HANDSHAKE_2_16200615    

6. Purchase Awards

ACA’s sponsorships are money put toward buying the work showcased in the final exhibit. Sponsors = guaranteed sales! Promote Yourself  

5. Special Awards

Unique awards are often the best awards to receive. Want a solo booth at ArtExpo New York? Want to be showcased in Art Business News & Venue Magazine? Yeah, we thought so.

4. Awards of Honor

Lifetime Achievement, Emerging Artist of the Year, Best of Show and Runner Up are the highest honor to receive as an artist. Isn’t it time you were recognized for your hard work & talent?



3. Gallery Contracts

This year we are awarding 14 gallery contract awards with galleries from all over the country. These awards can help kick-start or expand your career as an artist. A gallery contract lasts beyond the closing of the exhibition, giving you the chance to sell your work and grow as an artist. New Gallery Shot with glass  

2. You Can Win Multiple Awards

When you enter, you don’t have to specify what awards you are interested in winning. We don’t like to allow artists to pigeon hole themselves. ACA artists can win multiple awards! Want to win a purchase award, category award, AND a gallery contract? You just may leave the exhibit feeling like Adele. ACA makes that possible!


    And the number one reason artists should enter Art Comes Alive 2013 is...

1. Sales

The ultimate goal for any artist is to sell their work. Through this competition- and a combination of the jurors, sponsors, exhibit, awards, and publicity -this is your chance to get your artwork seen! Give people the opportunity to discover your talent by getting your artwork ‘out there’ & noticed through the help of ACA. It only takes one person falling in love with your work to find your art a home.
