Participating in this art competition has been a meaningful and transformative experience that has strengthened my confidence in my work and in myself as an artist. It has motivated me to continue exploring, creating and sharing my art with the world. If you (as an artist) have the opportunity to participate in an art contest, I encourage you to do so. No matter the end result, the experience itself will be valuable and will provide you with unparalleled personal growth and satisfaction. Don’t be afraid to show your talent and let your artistic voice resonate!

I found The Chelsea International Fine Art Competition to be a very positive experience. Everyone I dealt with from the gallery was extremely professional and helpful. The exhibit was thoughtfully arranged, and I enjoyed meeting and talking with the other exhibiting artists at the opening reception which had an impressive turn-out!

Just wanted to thank you for putting on, what I thought, was a super show. It looked fabulous and the reception seemed to be very well attended……especially for August. The extremely positive response to my work was insightful and reaffirmed that environmental art will be a big coming thing.

I would HIGHLY recommend that anyone thinking about entering the competition should do so. It was an absolutely amazing experience and I could not believe how packed the opening reception was, at points it was getting hard to move! It was great fun, great exposure, great space and hopefully won’t be the last time!

Bill Stephens (Billamack), United States, 2021/2022 Selected Artist for the Photography Competition
Being invited and involved with the Chelsea International Photography competition was a wonderful and seamless experience.

The Chelsea International Photography Competition was a wonderful experience for me! The Gallery is situated in the heart of the Manhattan Art District and is a lovely exhibition space. The team at the Agora Gallery was very efficient and professional. Their social media promotion is a boost for any artist! This is an opportunity not to be missed!

Monique Fillion, Canada, 2021/2022 Selected Artist for the Photography Competition
Thanks to Agora Gallery for a memorable week. The professional exhibition arrangement makes everyone’s works shine in the exhibition hall. We tell the story of creation with the guests. This is the proudest moment for every artist. And thanks to the jurors for their choice. It’s great to see so many wonderful artists publicly creating Spaces. Photography is the medium through which we record our lives and create stories. We all have a presence here.

It was a “wow” moment for me to display my work with artists from different countries. The whole process of the competition is so enriching and educating, rather its jurying, displaying of artworks, marketing and corresponding. It is remarkable to have a chance to work with the very enthusiastic team of Agora Gallery with their remarkable efforts. To participate in the Chelsea International Fine Art Competition is the best chance for any artists to show their work in front of the New York audience. It was overall a memorable experience.

I was honored to be part of the 36th Chelsea International Fine Art Competition Collective exhibition. During all the period, communications with the members of the Agora Gallery has been perfect, constant and always supportive. My picture was digitally exhibited and I think that this has been a great opportunity to show my work to a wider audience, that’s why I warmly suggest to other artist to participate to the future competition.

I attended the competition on behalf of Hiromitsu Kato. Thanks to the efforts of the organizers, we had a wonderful experience. Not only was it a valuable experience to be able to exhibit at Agora Gallery, it was also very exciting for me to be able to exchange ideas with artists from all over the world and to hear the evaluations of the people in New York who are connoisseurs of art. I hope that everyone will experience this challenge and sense of accomplishment!

It was wonderful to be part of the Chelsea International Fine Art Competition. They gave a great platform for my work to the international art market even during the peak of the pandemic when it was hard to reach an audience. I also felt a lot of warmth from Agora Gallery staff who got in touch with me during the exhibition. Communication was also clear from day one. It was extremely satisfying to see my work in the gallery; everything about it was just perfect.

I absolutely loved being part of The 2020 Chelsea International Photography Competition. The team was super professional and supportive during the process. I unfortunately couldn’t attend but felt confident in sending my image across the Ocean and loved seeing the images of “Serenity” in the gallery during the exhibition. I encourage artists to enter and to make the most of the opportunity and look forward to potentially exhibiting in the future.
