Whether you’ve been making art for decades, or you’ve never done something like this before, we’re creating a space for you to submit your creative work, have the opportunity to be recognized for it, and to reflect on the greatest Artist ever.
The Engage Art Contest is a juried competition for original visual art, music video, film and performing arts. The topic is the Spiritual Battle described in Ephesians 6:10-20 and related verses.
You can develop your artwork to illuminate any part of the Ephesians passage or any other Scripture, as long as you can relate it back to that passage in some way. There is no requirement to use war imagery.
Each Artist may enter one entry in each category. Entering is free. Ten (10) winners in each category will receive cash prizes.
$25,000 Per Category (Visual Art, Music Video, Film and Performing Arts)
- 1ST PLACE: $10,000
- 2ND PLACE: $5,000
- 3RD PLACE: $3,000
- 7 RUNNERS-UP: $1,000
All entrants who follow the contest guidelines will be rated “distinguished” and will have a page dedicated to their submission on our site, where they can offer that work as well as other goods and services for sale and drive traffic to their own websites. All sales will take place directly between the buyer and the artist. Some entries and artists will be showcased on our website and in our social media. In addition, we will actively seek to reach other organizations, ministries, churches, youth groups, and everyday people who can be influenced by what you create and may want you to create more of it for them. All exposure opportunities are free.
The Entrant must be 18 or older, but an artistic team may have younger members, as long as they have written parental permission.
Eligible Regions: Canada, U.S, Mexico
