THE BEST ART COMPETITION FOR ARTISTS IN THE NATION
$350,000+ IN AWARDS TO ARTISTS!
ADC Fine Art proudly sponsors ART COMES ALIVE (ACA), an international, juried fine-art competition and exhibit that awards the best emerging and professional artists.
Known as the “Academy Awards for Art,” ACA is embarking on its 11th year of helping artists get their work in front of art-industry professionals such as interior designers, art galleries, private art collectors, and corporate collections. Each year the art competition gets bigger and better, and this year over $350,000 in awards will be given to artists through gallery contracts, purchase awards, publishing contracts, and more!
We work hard throughout the year to round up the best awards. This year we have $350,000+ to give back to artists!
Our diverse panel of prestigious jurors seek artists working in a variety of media, subjects, and price points.
Unique to ACA, our Purchase Award Partners are private and corporate collectors who pre-commit to buying art.
