In order for winners to receive their prize, they must respond to the email within 48 hours and provide their full name, age, and mailing address.

Congratulations to Ismael and the other winners!
Sharing and celebrating creativity
Since 2009, the Pogo Art Contest has given you the opportunity to show the world what you can do. This year is no different.

If you’ve participated in the past, you’ll know this is a simple and fun contest that is free to enter and gives you a chance to show off your skills to a wide audience.

Once again, we’ve set up an amazing list of prizes for both the overall winner and each category winner!
How to Win
Listed below are the categories we’ll be considering. For each category, we will choose a winner. The Grand Prize will be rewarded to the entry that most impresses our esteemed judges.

  • Current Events

    For anyone who is posting satirical or thoughtful explorations into world events, politicians, news of the day, journalistic.
  • Wildly Creative

    This is for out-of-the box thinking, such as using an app not necessary or intended for making art. Or using a variety of apps (app mashing) in a very creative way. Something that no one has done before. Also could include collaborative efforts with more than one artist.
  • The Way You See It

    Representational, realistic/impressionistic art goes here; this includes landscapes, still lifes and portraits of people, aliens and pets.
  • Obviously Abstract

    No explanation needed.
Let’s meet the judges
Will researching their taste improve your chances? Who knows, but you’ll have a lot of fun browsing their work!
