CALLING ALL VISUAL ARTISTS

The Visual Artists Awards is now accepting entries for the 2017 Digital Edition honoring excellence in the field of projection mapping, motion graphics and augmented reality.

Originally the VAA's had planned to charge an entry fee to help offset the costs of operation and production.  However, after consulting with Grigori, founder of VJ Global Union, we "saw the light".  We believe that anybody who has the ability, the passion and the drive to create new, exciting, innovative, and visually appealing content should also have the right to showcase their talent on a global stage.  The intent of the Visual Artist Awards VAA2017 - Digital Edition is to provide a global platform for YOU, the artist.  

Yes, art is subjective, ethereal, and art transcends the laws of right and wrong.  Pablo Picasso said of art - "Learn the rules like a pro, so you can break them like an artist".  

At the VAA's we are often asked, how can you judge art and determine that one piece of art may be better than another?  We don't have an answer to that question.  But, we do know what inspires us - innovation, creativity, passion, drive and vision.

If you have those characteristics, we want to see your art.  But more importantly, we want the WORLD to see your art.  If the VAAs can do that, if we can help put you on a global stage, if we can introduce you to more viewers, more clients, other artists, and other visionaries, then we have done our job.

It was only a few weeks ago that we announced the formation of the VAA's and we already have applicants from 34 countries. We are growing and we have an important mission.
