A dynamic new opportunity for artists worldwide
to showcase and sell their artwork
ART360 will be delivered dynamically online via Crowdcast, Facebook, Youtube, Instagram, the Pure website and the ISSUU digital magazine platform during September 2020.
Launching on 31st August 2020 with an online Private View, the ISSUU digital magazine including all 180 artists will be featured and promoted on social media throughout September, alongside 30 LIVE broadcasts, streamed simultaneously on Facebook.
The LIVE broadcasts will take place 1 per day, and will include a pre-recorded video created in advance by the artists themselves, followed by a live interview and Q&A between the artist and one of the Pure team.
Following each days LIVE broadcast, the HD recording will also be downloaded and added to the Pure ART360 website page and Youtube channel for further viewing and promotion.
How it Works
Submissions are invited from artists aged 18 years or older working anywhere in the world. A maximum of 180 artists will be able to participate, of which a maximum of 30 will be invited to GO LIVE on Crowdcast from their studios anywhere in the world during September 2020.
Further, when government guidelines allow, a physical Art Fair event will be organised in the UK and all ART360 submitting artists will be considered for possible inclusion, with a guaranteed minimum of 30 selected to take part (additional fees and sales commission will be payable for this element).
Added bonus: All submitting artists will receive a free copy of our digital "How to sell your artwork online" guide
What do I need to submit?
For your page in the ISSUU digital magazine you will need to submit up to 4 images, one of yourself working or with your artwork and up to three pieces of artwork (see FAQ's for further details). You will also need to submit 100 to 150 words about yourself, your practice and your artwork, written in the 3rd person. The ISSUU digital magazine is searchable so the more information we have about your artwork and social media links, the easier it will be for you to reach your audience. We recommend you keep a separate copy of your statement etc in case of problems during upload.
If you are selected as 1 of the 30 to GO LIVE, you will also be asked to provide a short video of yourself in your studio or workspace. This can be you demonstrating, or talking about your practice or just a simple show around to set the scene.
When will I be notified if I am 1 of the 30?
The 30 artists selected to GO LIVE will be notified by 20 July 2020. You can decline to take part in this aspect even if you are selected.
What does it cost?
All submitting artists will pay £45 (or equivalent) and be guaranteed a page in the ISSUU digital magazine and will also be included in all social media activity throughout September.
From the maximum 180 artists who submit, 30 will be selected by an invited panel to GO LIVE via Crowdcast from their studios and these selected individuals will pay a further £65 (or equivalent).
What is the submission deadline?
Submissions will close when we receive 180 entries or on 1 July 2020, whichever is the sooner.
Do I get to keep profits from sales?
If you sell - which we sincerely hope you will - you keep all the money from any sales generated as a consequence of this activity*
*Note: Additional fees and sales commission will be payable for those who participate in the physical Art Fair event in due course.
