ARC Salon Finalists Announced

We are very pleased to announce the finalists of the 14th International ARC Salon Competition!

This year we received over 4,300 entries from 73 countries. Approximately 35% of the works submitted have qualified as finalists, about 1,500 works!

If you did not qualify as a finalist in this year's Salon, please do not be discouraged! It is not uncommon for an artist to be juried in as a finalist in some years and not in others. It all depends on what the adjudication scores are by category and the specific works being entered. We rotate and add new jurors every year and every year we receive a new selection of entries. Most of the works that were entered were good to great, so well done to all and we hope to see everyone participate again in next year's competition.

We wish to congratulate all of our finalists in the 14th International ARC Salon Competition for their accomplishment.

Winners will be announced on July 1st on the ARC website.
