Art Scene Today Competitions are  international monthly online competitions and exhibitions that serve to recognize and hono excellence in the visual arts, as well as  to provide exposure and marketing opportunities to emerging artists around the world. Artists who are selected as finalists benefit from exposure in a month-long online exhibition on artscenetoday.com and the printed Art Scene Today Exhibition Catalogue.
There will be a different theme each month covering a variety of subject matters and issues of the day.  Only artwork that effectively addresses the theme will be included in the final exhibition.  The winners and finalists will be chosen on the overall merit of the work and excellence in demonstrating the theme.
