Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery announces their 9th Annual “Abstracts” Online Juried Art Competition for the month of February 2018. 2D and 3D artists (including photography) from around the world are called upon to make online submissions for possible inclusion into the Gallery’s March 2018 online group art exhibition. The gallery encourages entries from artists, regardless of where they reside to apply to this competition by submitting their best and most creative abstract art.
The "Abstract" theme will be the artist’s interpretation and depiction of nonobjective or nonrepresentational art. The deadline to apply to this art competition is February 24, 2018.
Here is a link to the 2017 Abstracts Art Exhibition in order to help artists see what type of art was accepted in the past. Please review our article post which explains the Judging Criteria for Our Juried Art Competitions in order to help you as a guide with your entry submissions.
The 10 best entries chosen from the various media categories will be designated as the Overall Category Winning Artists and will be featured online at the Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery during the month of March 2018.

Winning artists (10 Overall Category Artists) of the 2018 “Abstracts” Art Exhibition will be promoted extensively by the gallery in the following manner;
LST gallery will promote and post on Artsy.net the winning artists. The LST Artsy.net page will feature the artist’s art and their website URL’s as part of the gallery’s overall prize package.
Artsy.net averages 2 million visitors a month and 46% of Artsy users who have purchased art via Artsy started out as art enthusiasts rather than preexisting collectors. By having their artwork placed and marketed on Artsy.net, LST artists will have a distinct advantage in terms of exposure, marketing and SEO of their art through the Light Space & Time/Artsy.net gallery partnership.
The top 10 winning artists for each exhibition will be promoted and circulated to over 1000+ News Outlets, Premium FOX, CBS, NBC, CW Affiliated Sites, 500 TV & Radio Sites, 250 Regional & Industry Sites and Social Media Inclusion through Kjprnews.com.
Winning artists will also have their art exhibition results posted and promoted on artweek.com. Artweek produces 800,000 page impressions per month, 280,000 website visitors per month and has 30,000 newsletter subscribers.
The LST Gallery website averages 70,000+ visitors and more than 225,000+ page views per month. Out of those visitors, 80% are new visitors to the website. Being a winning overall category artist should result in an increase in visitor traffic to the artist’s website as well.
In addition to the above, these winning artists of this exhibition will receive extensive worldwide publicity in the form of email marketing, event announcements and wide-spread social media marketing and promotion to make the art world aware of the artists’ achievement.
There will also be a video of the winning artists’ artworks on the Light Space & Time YouTube Channel. In addition, there will also be links back to the artists’ website as part of this achievement package. Winning artists also receive a digital Award Certificate, digital Award Ribbon, digital Event Postcard, and Press Release for their art portfolio.
Artists provide us with your best abstract art before the deadline.
