Does the work have to be exclusive to Bluethumb?

The artwork must be exclusively available on Bluethumb throughout the Prize Period and until 31st May 2024. This is to ensure that our collectors can vote for their favourite artwork and for you to benefit from the additional marketing campaigns that will be in place.

Any artwork sold off the Bluethumb platform during these dates will be disqualified from the Prize.

Will there be a winners exhibition?

The People’s Choice Art Prize is an online only event. This means voting will occur online and no physical artworks will be required for any physical exhibitions.

Do favourites count to voting?

Favourites do not count - only votes placed through the voting page during the voting period will count towards the final tally.

Can I sell the work I have entered?

To qualify, the artwork must be available for purchase at the time you enter the prize. If the the work then sells through Bluethumb during the entry and voting period, the work is still eligible to win. Any works sold off Bluethumb's site during the whole prize period will be disqualified.

Is the annual Bluethumb Art Prize still being held this year?

The People's Choice Art Prize is a new, smaller prize that is different to our annual Bluethumb Art Prize. Dates for our annual prize will be announced later in 2024.

I entered my artwork into the prize, but I can't see it on the voting page?

Only Bluethumb Pro subscribers are eligible to enter the People's Choice Art Prize. If you've entered an artwork, and can't see it on the voting page, ensure you are subscribed to a Bluethumb Pro plan by going to the Billing section of your account.

Once subscribed to a Bluethumb Pro plan, your artwork will appear in the voting page for collectors to see and vote.

Note: You will still be able to download a share tile for an artwork without a Bluethumb Pro Subscription, but your artwork will not be seen on the voting page, nor will it be eligible to enter or win.
