AAUW Art Contest for Members

One of the 2020 Winners-Circles of Our Lives” by Jackie Brittingham (IA)

In the art world women are underrepresented and undervalued. Only a third of artists represented by commercial galleries are women and women working in arts professions are paid on average 74 cents to every dollar paid to men. This is what motivates AAUW to host an annual art contest — to give women artists the attention they deserve. Are you an AAUW member with a passion for creating works of art? This year’s contest begins on January 6 with entries accepted through February 3. Voting opens on February 10 and will close on March 3. The six winning entries will be featured in a collection of notecards mailed to AAUW members in the spring. Please consult the contest rules below for helpful tips on ensuring a quality entry. We look forward to seeing your works of art this year! Entries will be accepted from January 6 through February 3, 2021. Enter here
