All contests are influenced by the number of votes a design receives.  So be sure to promote your entry on social media too! On some contests, votes determine the pool of finalists or runners up, and the APEALZ Art Judges and/or an APEALZ MasterCreator selects the winner. On other contests, the artist with the highest number of votes wins. Throughout 2020, APEALZ sponsors multiple contests with various themes for you to participate in. 

CONGRATULATIONS! YOU WON! We'll email you to notify that you were a winner or runner up for any contest you enter! We'll coordinate details of your prizes at that time. Your information and winning artwork will also be displayed on the Winner's Circle page: https://www.apealz.com/contests/winnerscircle

Once contests are open for voting, you'll see a "VOTE NOW" button on the top right of the website, just click it, and you'll be able to vote on any of the contests listed there. You can vote for multiple artists on the same contest. You can vote on multiple contests. If you're an artist, you can join any contest that interests you!
