“We created this app because we know how many unknown but highly talented artists are out there. Now through the "America's Top Artist" app, these artists can gain massive exposure even if they don't win the $10,000 prize."
Manhattan, NY (PRWEB) September 12, 2012
This is the first Art competition to hit the iPhone and iPAD scene, and the founding company Draw Art LLC has just formally announced the $10,000 prize that will go to the winner.
The app allows artists from all over the country to upload their art into the “America’s Top Artist” competition. Once approved, the art appears in the “Main Gallery” where all users and art lovers can rate each piece from 1 to 5 stars. The highest rated pieces then get moved to the “Top Rated” section via an algorithm that updates the app every hour.
Co-founder and artist, Nicholai Khan, says “We created this app because we know how many unknown but highly talented artists are out there. Now all these artists can upload their art, and even if they don’t win the $10,000 prize, they can gain massive exposure by having thousands of art lovers view their art in the app."
With their name above their piece of art, and with the sharing functions we’ve included for each piece to potentially go viral, unknown artists now have the opportunity to become overnight superstars.”
The “America’s Top Artist” iPhone and iPAD app is free to download, and users can rate and vote for their favorite pieces of art. Artists pay just $0.99 for each piece of art that they submit into the competition (to win $10,000).
Also scheduled to be released in the next 90 days are the iPhone and iPAD apps “America’s Top Young Artist” and “Europe’s Top Artist”.
“We believe that the greatest new talent is found via competitions that showcase up and coming stars, and give them a platform to showcase their greatness. This has been consistently proven with hit TV shows like “American Idol”, “America’s Got Talent”, “America’s Best Dance Crew”, and “So You Think You Can Dance”.
"We are now bringing that same level of greatness and exposure to the art community.” Says co-founder Talor Zamir.
