Koger Center The Project

Koger Center for the Arts is now accepting submissions for their art competition, called The Project: A Call for Art. The fourth annual competition is open now through July 17.

This year's submission deadline coincides with the opening of the exhibition featuring last year’s contest winners, with Nick Brutto as the first-place winner. The first-place winner for this year will receive a $500 prize and gallery space to publicly display in the Upstairs Gallery of the Koger Center.

Submissions must meet the following criteria:

  • The artist must be over 18 years old and based in South Carolina
  • Submissions must be original work
  • Artists cannot submit any art that has been previously submitted

The Koger Center for the Arts launched 'The Project', originally called 'The 1593 Project' during the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020. Goals of the art competition included offering a small financial award to a South Carolina artist and providing a platform to showcase the talent of artists in the state through an exhibition at a time when the arts were in a state of uncertainty. According to the Koger Center for the Arts, as the pandemic began to decline, they recognized the need to continue supporting artists through the competition and accompanying exhibition.

Artists submitting work for The Project: A Call for Art, can submit their work here. The submission form is also on the Koger Center for the Arts website.
