Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s easy for us to lose track on amazing artists and their artworks, which is saddening because some of the greatest arts are created during the toughest times. If you’re an artist, emerging, mid-career or established, we would love to see your incredible artwork and help foster your passion and future in the art scene. We’d like to share your artwork with as greater audiences as possible and also provide emerging artists the opportunity to exhibit with us and publish their work on INDULGENCE MAGAZINE! Artworks do not have to be done specifically for the competition, previous unpublished artworks are accepted and artworks that are inspired during the isolation period are also recommended.
