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.”

My experience at the Agora Gallery is by far the most satisfying of the many galleries I’ve appeared in. The communication between the gallery and myself have been superb, timely and responsive. Within 2 days of the opening, they have sold 4 out my 5 offerings and the 5th remaining one is getting a great response. I feel honored to be included in this exhibition of truly superb work. Thank you for having me!
Richard Greene, United States, 2018 Selected Artist
I have had a very professional and straight forward experience with Agora Gallery and its staff. Firstly, the level of communication has been superior, polite, courteous and very clear. The photography exhibition is very strong; the work is strong and the hanging of the work is impressive and professional. The show looks really interesting. The gallery’s treatment of me has been professional and respectful. Agora has not pretentious in its manner; business like. Nothing but good vibes here.

Honored to have my work exhibited at the 2nd Annual Chelsea International Photography Competition organized by the Agora Gallery, I warmly recommend photographers to participate in future competitions. My experience with the Agora Gallery’s team has been fantastic from the beginning till the end of the show. Communications has been flawless during all the process and members of the Agora Gallery are true professionals, always available to help you and give you advises. This competition has been a great opportunity to show my work to a wider audience and the gallery itself is a wonderful place that really valorize your photographs. I am deeply thankful to the Agora Gallery for having me at this exhibition. I hope the best to all the team and good luck for the next events.

One of the ways to get genuine exposure of your work is to submit it to Art Competitions with outstanding jurors. And such was the case of The Chelsea International Photography Competition at Agora Galley.
Personally, I am always looking for exceptional competitions to send in my portfolio. I regard my art practice as an endurance race, always must keep going, and this is a way to do so. No matter what the outcome of it might be.
Laura Viñas, Argentina, 2018 Selected Artist
Participating in the Chelsea International Photography Competition, in partnership with Agora Gallery has been a game changer to me. As a new artist, after hard work research and keen eyes, being recognized overseas uplifted me to do not only more of art but better art. It fueled me with the energy I need to make sure I am on the right path. Lastly, being an artist among such talented global peers is not an easy task, and I would love to join forces with the Chelsea community encouraging other artists to dare to engage in future exhibitions and share their talents.
Renata Vale, Brazil, 2018 Selected Artist
The gallery sold 3 of my photographs! The price of artworks was carefully negotiated to secure the best outcome and any profit from sale transferred in timely manner.
It was a pleasure to work with the Agora Gallery staff, all were very professional, friendly and the communication was excellent!
Artur Golacki, United Kingdom, 2017 Selected Artist
It is always great to know that one´s work is being exhibited internationally and in prestigious gallery so it’s a feeling recognition after may years of photography.
Stephanus Meyer, Spain, 2017 Selected Artist
I think that the fact that the jurors selected my work to be exhibited in your gallery has been a great step to open up new opportunities in the word of photography and art, to grow a little more. For me it has been a great incentive that inspires me and motivates me even more to continue doing what I love so much.
Nadia Cecilia Manzanares Vargas, México, 2017 Selected Artist
I was super excited to see my work displayed. I was especially fortunate to have my photo used as the “poster photo” for the show and when we approached the gallery on the way to the opening we saw the poster on a wall with other gallery posters. I was not expecting this and I was so excited and proud. When I saw my work in the gallery everything about the show was professional and I couldn’t have been happier to have been selected for the show.
