Competition Overview

PleinAir Magazine presents the first annual “Plein Air Salon.” In the spirt of the French Salon created by the Acade’mie des Beaux-Arts in Paris, this annual competition with bi-monthly contests leading to an annual Salon winner is designed to stimulate artist growth through competition and to reward artists through recognition and $20,000 in cash prizes. It is our belief that cash prizes assist in removing pressure to earn a living and help create an environment to thrive and develop new work in a pressure-free environment.

Each bi-monthly competition will offer recognition awards, visibility through PleinAir Magazine’s newsletter editions plus awards of materials and supplies.
The competition is an annual contest with a bi-monthly component. Winners of each bi-monthly competition will be entered into the annual contest at which time a 1st, 2nd, 3rd place and runner ups will be selected.
We will be rewarding up to $20,000 in prizes plus many merchandise and recognition awards. In order to enter you’ll have to register for your first entry and can use your sign-in and password for additional entries or future entries.

  • 1st place: $ 15,000 cash prize plus more!
  • 2nd place: $ 3,000  cash prize plus more!
  • 3rd place: $ 1,500 cash prize
  • 3 finalists: $ 500 cash prize
  • Plus showcase of all winners in PleinAir Magazine!

We’re excited to launch this brand new art competition and are looking forward to the great works of art we’re sure to see submitted!
