Wraptious Art Competition 2023


Hello Artists! Would you like to see your work developed into a giftware range, and exhibited in a prestigious London gallery? You're invited to submit one piece of work to our website when our competition opens. There is no theme or preferred medium.

It's free to enter, open to all artists of any age globally. You own copyright, earn commission and it's the only time we take on new artists. Six artists with the most points are automatically shortlisted, while a further six are chosen by us. Give it a go! :)

STEP 2: Upload your artwork.
STEP 3: Your art will be available as a cushion in our shop for the duration of the competition, and shared on Facebook.
STEP 4: People can then vote for your entry!

All entries are posted on our Facebook page. Artists earn 1 point per Facebook Like, 10 points per Facebook Share, and 100 points per sale. The 6 artists with the most points are automatically shortlisted. All sales earn artists commission too, and force our hand into planting a tree!

To keep it fair, a further 6 artists are chosen by us as we recognise not all artists have a strong social media following.

“I love Wraptious. There competitions are wonderful for new artists. The quality of their products are excellent. They pay artists and plant trees. I wish there were more companies like this.”

Jenna Baker

“Beautiful products, I entered the competition and myself and my family were able to buy cushions and prints. They came out beautifully and the material of the vegan suede is lovely. Would definitely use them again.”

  About Wraptious  

In 2013, Simon made his first sale on a windy Manchester market stall. It's fair to say, it didn't go well with the stall blown away within a few hours, making it clearly how hard it is for creatives to promote their work. But with perseverance and passion, we began a journey that has seen Wraptious champion over 50 artists directly whilst supporting 1000s more. We love collaborating with artists and makers, creating award-winning, beautiful products.

We take our responsibilities seriously at Wraptious - using sustainable resources and eco-conscious packaging. Through our Partnership with Trees for the Future, we also plant a tree for every purchase - part of our mission to build meaningful relationships with our artists, customers and the wider environment in which we all share.
