Welcome to the Portrait Society of America's 3rd
International Self Portrait Fundraiser, "A View of Self." Two years ago, we challenged artists around the world to paint, draw, or sculpt their self-portrait, and we want to keep this challenge going! We’ve changed the format for this year. A juror will be invited to review all the entries and select their top 50 entries. From August 1-31, 2022, a people’s choice will be decided by public voting.
The Entry Fee is $5.00, and every vote for your favorite work of the select 50 is $1.00. Funds raised will be used to support the ongoing educational programming of the Portrait Society of America.

We will accept original, 2- and 3-dimensional art. All mediums are accepted including oil, acrylic, watercolor, gouache, pastel, charcoal, pencil, pen and ink, bronze, and wood. No photography prints or computer-generated artwork will be accepted. Because this is an online competition, there are no size restrictions. The submission must be an original self-portrait and of excellent quality, so submit your best work.
