Photo, Makeup, and Illustration Contest Deadline now Nov 14!


A World of Circus photo, makeup, and illustration contest is a creative arts contest. To be clear it’s not a circus theme. We accept art that embraces the creative freedom found in this “Circus World” that we live in.

We have extended the deadline for entries until Nov 14th and there is no reason you should not submit your work. It’s affordable with some categories being free. Best of all it’s copyright friendly and artist serving.

This is our final effort to show you what we are made of and it’s all good stuff.


We have more than 70 prize places and over $45,000 in prize values. Sponsored prizes Epson prints, printer, Make Up For Ever products, Wacom tablets, Smugmug accounts, Fuji Camera, 500px accounts, lightblaster, cash prizes, and more. Thank you to all of our media sponsors like Henry’s, CAPIC, and more. Social media featuring, post contest exhibitions. During this extension of the contest your chances of winning something are One in two. This may change as the week progresses but it’ll still be a fantastic chance.


Gratitude to our celebrity judges.

Forget Judges, you can rely on the quality of your work and the support systems you have in place. People can vote once a day on your work and you can share the same work in your social media for another reason.
