Submit your art by Friday, July 15 at 11:59 pm ET!

What is the contest?

Art is a universal language for us to share our voices, tell our stories, and act as a medium for change. Here at ARTE, we aim to emphasize the power of art and invite you to do the same.

 

The ARTivism (Art + Activism) Art Contest asks young artists, ages 13-18, to submit visual art pieces that comment on a personal experience or issue related to a broader theme in our society.

Please see the page below for examples of art pieces ARTE's Junior Board, who created and organized this contest, find relevant and inspirational.
