Let me introduce you to the many flavors of the Steemit Art Community. There's a rich variety of challenges, contests and collaborations to pick from! There are many more experienced artists on Steemit that could write this list and it's maybe been written before, but this is my contribution to this lovely community and all the dedicated people hosting. I've tried many of the challenges the last months and hope you share the list with your friends to involve more people in the creative explosion happening at this moment. I'll give you a quick introduction - seek out each host for more information. And tell me if I've missed any major event, maybe in other languages than English.

List of reoccurring events (alphabetic order by type):

.....:::::: * ::::::.....

(Reward is only one of many possible motivations to be active in the Steemit art community, as @everlove expressed the benefits of taking part of Steemit art collaborations: finding connections, learning each other's styles, melding our talents, sharing our passions, exchanging positively good feeling energy, upping our own abilities, showing gratitude and appreciation, inspiring others (and much more...). I have marked collaborations not including any competition, altcoin or SBD reward with a (&) symbol. Although reward is great motivation I think other values are more important if we're about to create a more collaborative world.)

There are lots of people needing a helping hand when it comes to visuals. Logos, art and different sorts of design. In the contest-tag or different art tags Steemians post new challenges daily. And there is a newer diminishing need for new logos, banners, wallpapers, footers and so on! :D (One place new challenges are posted is the Steemit Designers Facebook group)

Ohhhhh, too low on steem to reward this post, but I will resteem it as it is MAGNIFICENT!! We are an incredible group of artists in many ways--so many genres and abilities coming together--as well as the power of building community based on our passions!!! Win win win win win win!!!

Thanks for bringing all this information together for an easy and tangible reminder of all we have to offer each other. I'm already participating in many of them and see a few more I have yet to check out.

I appreciate your including the Collaborative Art Journey in this post. We are on a roll to an incredibly beyond-amazing repertoire of collaborations. Thanks for sharing the possibilities @jnart!!


It's so great, thanks for your comment!

Excellent resource, i resteemed :)

Amazing post! Just yesterday...I was searching for a list just like this one and here it is! So great...thank you. Almost missed our contest down at the bottom in photo's more digital art related than just photo. Keep them up and I will resteem often :)


Yeah, have thought about it for a while. Nice to hear that you like it! True that about the digital art - I might put them together with the others if I get more of this kind of feedback.

Awesome list! Resteeming.


Thanks a lot!


Thank you!

Very Good Post !! Thank you <3


Your welcome!

Thanks for the great list. This is such an eclectic community and I'm happy to be here. I really enjoy the MonoMad weekly contest by @brumest. There is some great talent there.


Ill add it! Thanks!

Very very nice post, thank you for sharing :)


You're welcome!

Wow, I had no idea there were so many!
What a great idea bringing them all together.

Could you please feature my #streetartchallenge ?
Now in its 3rd week.

It encourages people to explore their area and share the street art they find.


How could I miss this, I've seen it before. It's in place. Thanks for a really cool challenge idea!


I thanks for the exposure and featuring it. It's really appreciated

Thank you my friend


Welcome bro!

Great work! I already started to save some hyperlinks earlier, but this is just perfect! MANY THANKS! upvoted and resteemed!

FYI, I just started an initiative trying to stimulate creative people to take a little break, write down a positive quote and decorate it with some handmade art and publish under #HandmadeQuoteArt

The benefit will be triple!
-1. make a break / mini-meditation while writing and drawing (daily)
-2. spread positive vibes with the positive quotes
-3. share experience and learn from other creative people

Sounds really nice, I add it later when it has built a little momentum :)

Is it too late to add to the list? I just started a new art contest and I'm looking for entries! 15 sbd up for grabs! Here's the link


Not to late. I've chosen not to include single contests. When I see that is repeated I'll add it. Thanks for the information!


will do. Thanks!

That's a great list!:D thank you very much for taking the time to make it n.n ...also please add my challenge n.ñ


Thanks for the information! I've decided not to add single events so I'll add yours the next time you run it. But I thinks there is a place for many manga challenges!


There are many Anime/Manga lovers around here, and very talented!!:D

thank you for this post, its good to see it together... I would be glad if you could add also my drawing contest :)


Thanks! I didn't know if your event would be repeated, but I think you should host one contest too and continue sharing your talent!


What should I call it?


I would like to repeat it once a month and you can name it just "art contest"... mostly paintings andr drawings, but also some crafts maybe :)


Cool! Done!

Great list. I found some new ones here. Will check them out. Thanks!
