VISUAL ART CONTEST PRIZES

Art is rarely created for prizes. Instead it’s created to tell a story, change perceptions or to express intense emotions.  Artists often receive recognition of their art in galleries, shared online or gaining praise and support from their community.  However, we understand that sometimes receiving recognition in the form of prizes is pretty neat too.

It Takes a Village to Save the World

Visual Art Contest 2015 | Art Changes the World 

is running in conjunction with

It Takes a Village to Change the World campaign.

VIRTUALVillage Media, in partnership with The Delicious Foundationsm,  strives to raise funds to sponsor five children via WorldVision.org so we can fight the causes of poverty and give these kids, and their communities, a better world.

Even if you’re not an artist you can still help change the world in other ways, you can donate at It Takes a Village to Change the World (Coming soon) or you can participate in our Virtual World Fair and any of our other mixed reality events, taking place in both the actual and virtual worlds!

It only takes one person to initiate change and make a difference.
