Everyone has a story, and we believe that any story can become a work of art.

www.StoriesToArt.com empowers art lovers to select exclusive pieces of art or commission art, music or poetry inspired by their own – or a loved one’s – stories and memories. The result is a one-of-a-kind treasure/gift that offers them unique creative input while allowing artists to maintain their style and creative license. Best of all, artists on our site keep 60% of their sales, and 5% of our profits go to arts education via StoriesToArt Gives Back.

We welcome distinguished artists from every field, and recent art school graduates are encouraged to apply to this contest.

A Competition With Unique InspirationsAnd Cash Prizes, Too.

From the stories at the very bottom of these rules, choose at least 1 as inspiration (literal and/or figurative) for a piece of art, poetry or song. Use our other stories as inspiration or submit up to 5 additional works of art along with the stories that inspired them. Stories should not be more than 125-200 words long. Each contestant must submit at least 3 entries.

Think about how your style would work with capturing a moment or story someone tells you – we can envision paintings, sculpture, illustration, comics, animation, industrial designs, jewelry, textiles, mixed media, photography, poetry and songs, but are open to all media.
