Important Links to Artist Openings and Opportunities.

| |

These following links are important resources for Australian artists, but there are also some world wide links that will connect you with competitions, exhibitions and opportunities. Some are free to join, but there is always good reasons to up-grade as this often allows you greater opportunities to use various web-site resources as well as receiving information first.

The first arts site I'd like to discuss is Arts Hub this site is available also in the USA and UK and has the most extensive art based job listings that I have found. There is a subscription cost, but it is well worth it. You will get all the latest info on this site and I have always found it comprehensive as well allowing me to enter various competitions and apply for various positions from all fields of art. You can't go without being a member of this site.

Arts Connect
This was actually one of the first sites I started using a few years ago. This site lists or the relevant contest and opportunities in Arts around Australia and also internationally.

This is directly from the site itself : ABOUT ARTSCONNECT

artsConnect promotes Australian artists of all media on the internet - from filmmakers, painters, poets, musicians, actors, sculptors, designers, fire artists, fashion designers, graffiti artists, jewellery designers, performing artists, writers etc.

artsConnect is based on Manly Corso on the northern beaches of Sydney. Established by Teresa Charchalis in February 2002, and developed with assistance from the NEIS government program (New Enterprise Incentive Scheme), artsConnect has grown to be a large and very active art portal in Australia.

There are over 500 artists, troupes and resources are profiled on artsConnect. Visitors can contact artists directly via their profile regarding paid commission work and exhibitino opportunities, there is no fee for referrals received through artsConnect.

In July 2006 the National Library of Australia added artsConnect in its archive of nationally significant online publications. This means the entire artsConnect is digitally recorded within the National Library of Australia's database, and will be accessible for research by future generations to come.

Artists are invited to Register for a one page web profile that outlines their creative interests, shows examples of their work and provides a contact for others to connect with them. artsConnect has successfully connected hundreds of artists with galleries, private art buyers, event organisers, corporates and festivals.
