2023 Eligibility Guidelines

Atlantic County/NJ State Senior Citizens Annual Juried Art Contest & Exhibition

Three painting on display at the 2015 Senior Citizen Artshow held at the Ventnor Library.


County: Any artist, age 60 or over, currently residing in Atlantic County, New Jersey, may submit artwork completed within the three years immediately prior to his or her County Senior Art Show. Artists may enter in only one County show.

Entries may not have been previously entered in prior County Senior Art Shows or in the New Jersey Senior Citizens Art Show.

Only ONE ENTRY per artist may be entered.

State: Artwork that has won First Place at 2023 County Senior Citizen Art Shows are automatically eligible to advance to the New Jersey Senior Art Show.

Entries must have been created since April 2020, and cannot have been shown in any past NJ Senior Citizen Art Shows.

Only County Coordinators may submit work from their County show to the State Senior Art Show. Artists may not submit work directly to the State Show. Participating Counties may submit one professional and onenon-professional entry in each of the following 11 categories may be entered: acrylic, craft, digital art, mixed media, oil, pastel, photography, print, sculpture, watercolor, and works on paper (drawing, etc.). Only the first place winners from County shows are accepted for the State Show.

Optimally, there should be at least 2-3 entries (on the County level) for a first place winner to be selected in that category. However, if there is only a SINGLE entry in a category, it is the County Juror’s discretion to award First Place (if that Juror judges the work as deserving to represent the County at the State Show) or to award an Honorable Mention.
