About the event
The 5th Edition of the Boynes Emerging Artist Award will launch on the 1st August 2021 and will conclude accepting submissions on the 14th November, 2021. This Edition will also see the inclusion of Sculpture works for the first time since its founding in addition to the acceptance of all 2D visual mediums.
The Boynes Emerging Artist Award was founded on the 1st November, 2019 in Melbourne, Australia by Founder and Artist Chantal Boynes. Boynes decided to launch her own award while in the process of applying to another and realising the lack of continuous support and community from the competitions and awards that she had experienced. She realised that in addition to compensating talent, it could be a powerful platform for those that had none and a doorway to a supportive community
As artists and creatives, the BEAA team strives to continue to develop community and an increased profile for all its' artists and one way that we have always done this is treat this award as a gateway. Yes there are incredible winners and finalists but we have always seen far too much talent for it to go unrewarded. This is why from its founding, the have highlighted dozens of submitters, either through ads, social media or artist interviews with Founder Chantal Boynes.
Our pure dedication to our artists is very clear and is something that submitters, finalists and winners alike have heralded many times. If words won't convince of our impact, receiving double the submission of those who have been around longer and with bigger prizes should. We have no doubt of our worldwide impact and the strength of our community.

"The Boynes Emerging Artist Award is a dedication to emerging artists all over the world. My goal has always been to grow our community and in turn support for all emerging artists, from your fellow artists. I created this Award to support, promote and connect emerging artists all around the world and work to enhance the profile of young and/or undiscovered talent. Whether it be a financial support through the art award or exposure, we will continue to work with all our artists.
Simply put I am an artist, a figurative oil painter, who has not painted since 2019. I have instead dedicate my own career to the growth of others'."
