Embracing Our Differences invites you to participate in the 2025 Exhibition Competition and in creating a world where differences are embraced and individuality is celebrated.
Artists, photographers, professionals, amateurs, students are all invited to submit their interpretation of the theme “enriching lives through diversity”.
A total of $6,000 will be presented in the form of three separate awards – $2,000 each for “Best-in-Show Adult”, “Best-in-Show Student” and “People’s Choice”. The “People’s Choice” award will be determined by visitors to the exhibit.
Artists possess a powerful tool to evoke social change. Without uttering a single word, they can enlighten, educate and effect change around the world. Embracing Our Differences invites you to participate in creating a society where diversity is embraced and individuality is celebrated. Become a part of this change by submitting your original art to Embracing Our Differences and its annual international outdoor juried art exhibit featuring 50 billboard-size images measuring 16 feet (5m) wide by 12.5 feet (4m) high.
The 2025 exhibit will be displayed mid-January through mid-April at multiple locations in Southwest Florida.
Since 2004, the exhibit has hosted over 4.3 million visitors, in addition to 587,395 students via Embracing Our Differences’ education programs, for a very unique opportunity to experience the importance of inclusion, kindness, and respect in our lives.
Become a part of this exciting change through your visual art or creative writing submission to the 21st annual Embracing Our Differences competition.
