The PleinAir Salon Art Competition was created by PleinAir magazine publisher Eric Rhoads, and we are celebrating our 13th year. In the spirit of the French Salon created by the Academie des Beaux-Arts in Paris, this annual online competition, with 12 monthly cycles, leading to the annual PleinAir Salon Art Competition, is designed to stimulate artistic growth through competition. The competition rewards artists with $50,000 in all cash prizes each year, and exposure of their work, with the winning painting featured on the cover of PleinAir magazine.

Winners in each monthly competition receive recognition and exposure through PleinAir magazine’s print magazine, e-newsletters, websites, and social media. Winners of each competition will also be entered into the annual competition. The 13th Annual Awards will be presented live at the Plein Air Convention & Expo in May 2024, where the winner will be presented with a $15,000 check!
