The Annual PleinAir Salon Art Competition consists of six bi-monthly competitions and culminates in the Annual Grand Prize winner being announced on stage at the Plein Air Convention and Expo in April each year. Our bi-monthly competitions feature 22 awarded categories including: best overall winners, medium, subject and age. The entry fee is $35 for the first painting and $13 for every painting thereafter. Each person is allowed to enter as many paintings as they want in as many categories as they want. The first place winner of each bi-monthly competition is awarded $1,000.
A guest judge will select the 19 category and the three best overall winners and all of those will be eligible for the grand prize in April. The more you enter the better your chances of winning. Annual winners are announced at the Plein Air Convention and Expo each April, taking place in San Francisco on April 24, 2019. We award cash prizes to the second and third place winners, as well as three honorable mentions, and the Grand Prize winner takes home $15,000 and will be featured on the cover of PleinAir magazine.
