NAVS Art for Animals Contest 2021

NAVS’ Art for Animals contest is an opportunity for artists of all skills and ages to create images that inspire others to extend compassion, respect and justice to all animals. This year marks our 31st annual competition, and we’re once again looking for fresh perspectives to illustrate NAVS’ mission of ending the exploitation of animals used in science.

In particular, artists are encouraged to draw their inspiration from one of the three areas of special focus for NAVS this year—non-human primates in research, dogs in research and classroom dissection. 

Whether you’re paying tribute to an animal in your life, or appreciating animals in the world around you, we want to see how you picture compassion for animals with your entry for Art for Animals 2021. Your artwork could appear in print and online messages from NAVS, and on greeting cards and on social media throughout the year.

Cash prizes will be given to First, Second and Third Place winners, one Youth (age 12 and under) winner, and one Best in Show winner. This year, we’re also introducing a special Fans’ Choice Award that will be chosen by our friends and followers on social media.

Submissions may be digitally-created artwork or digital reproductions of original paintings, illustrations or photographs. Entries should be submitted via email to Physical artwork cannot be accepted.
