More than 250 artists from around the world submitted their entries, accumulating to over 1200 images. We were able to bring their works to the collective attention of our committee. Selection was totally anonymous, based solely on the quality of the artists work as evidenced by the work submitted. After deliberations, the committee selected the following 45 artists for inclusion in the 2012 International Juried Fine Art Painting Competition. We were gratified by the response to this inaugural event and appreciated everyone's participation. We look forward to hosting the 4th Annual International Juried Fine Art Painting Competition.
