Artist of the Week

About This Group

Main purpose of the 'Artist of the Week' group is the attempt to make known more of the artists that participate in the group through the contests and the other activities of the group.

Every day I see so many beautiful photos and paintings and other pieces of fine arts. And, I press the like button, and the share button, and I leave a very positive comment on his/her page and I even press the follow button. But are all those quite enough ?! Through this group I would like to make an attempt for a more attentive and assiduous artistic exploration.

Every week we will arrange a CONTEST to vote for the 'Artist of the Week. And, I will be very happy to make a written interview and a biographical post with him/her, in order to publish it on my blogs and share it with our large community!!!

All the links for the interviews of the winners are availaible in the discussion page: Artist of the week - the interviews
You can also find them in the blogs I manage:
○○ By jwp on Blogger,
○○ Ioanna Papanikolaou - Fine Art America Blog,
○○ Find a way by jwp on Tumblr and
○○ the pinterest board of the group

You can also participate in the other activities of the group:

I ○ Promote your work and your pages (websites, social media pages etc.) in one post:

II ○ 'The story behind: Promote your work with a story'. You can read about it and participate here:

III ○ Answer the question of the week / post and promote your work:

Hope you like my attempt and participate and embrace it with your beautiful work !!!

And, the practical issues:

• All mediums are accepted.

• You can upload 1 image per day.

• Please let's keep it a family friendly group. No adult content (absolutely no nudity, death, cruelty, blood scenes or violence of any kind).

Thank you all so much for your time and your participation !!!
Wish you all the best and keep up your amazing work!!!

And, I will conclude with a very wise and inspirational chinese proverb:
'Beginning is easy -- continuing hard.'

Best regards,
