The ArtSlant Prize, now in its 5th year, is given to emerging artists that exhibit great potential and commitment to their artistic practice. Previous winners include Julie Davidow, Michael Zelehoski, Chantel Foretich, Robert Minervini, Holly Murkerson, Veronica Bruce and others. As part of this program, three to four winners are selected each year to exhibit at a major art fair in the United States; for the last three years, that fair has been Aqua Art Miami.

Over the course of the year, our users submit their work to be reviewed by a panel of jurors comprised of gallerists, curators, arts professionals and artists. From each round, 8 Juried Winners are selected and from this pool of exceptional artists, the winners of the ArtSlant Prize are selected. One winner will receive a purchase award and one of their works will enter the ArtSlant Collection. You can check out all the jurors and Juried Winners from 2013 here. The ArtSlant Prize 2013 purchase award winner will be announced at the ArtSlant AfterParty on Saturday, December 7th at Aqua Art Miami.
