At Figureworks we believe strongly in providing artists an excellent opportunity to exhibit their work and do our best to increase the prize money available to artists every year. We are volunteer based and all the entry fees and sponsorship go to basic operational costs and prize money. Figureworks takes no commissions on sales at the Figureworks exhibition; all of the money goes directly to the artists.

Thank you and we look forward to your submission!
