Our 2022 Competition Theme: REFLECTIONS ON THE NATIONAL PSYCHE.
THE ARTISTS FORUM invites artists to showcase interpretations for the phrase: Reflections on the National Psyche. The term “national psyche” refers to the collective thinking or attitude of a nation as a whole, and is not specific to any individual nation. This idea can be applied to or in contrast with any cultural ideology.

Our Grand Prize winners will be presented with an opportunity for mentorship sessions with industry professionals.
All selected artists are eligible for a television studio or Zoom interview to be promoted on our online platforms and via THE ARTISTS FORUM TELEVISION – an arts-based cable TV program broadcasted from New York City since 2000.
