Call for Submissions: Nudus 2022

NUDUS – 2022

Express your artistic world of the human body

Deadline: July 24, 2022
Apply Now at Gallerium or CaFE


Nudus 2022 is an all-medium dual art competition presented mutually by Gallerium Art Exhibitions and The Book of Art Publication.

Nudus; a Latin word for nude and naked, has been an enduring artistic tradition in western art throughout history.

Unclothed human figures of men and women have been part of the art world since the ancient Greek and Renaissance eras. Surprisingly, naked figures have been used to express a hidden religious, moral, or political significance. Furthermore, the nude figures have been presented as decorative arts or symbols for fertility and well-being.

For Nudus 2022, we are looking for nude figures as a manifestation of the body, the unveiling, the essence of the true human being, an identity of body and soul, which along with the appearance, leads to the truth within.

All visual artists working in any art medium are invited to submit their applications from anywhere in the world.

Selected artworks will be showcased in a smart international online group exhibition organized by Gallerium and will get published in The Book of Arts: Nudus.

Other awards include artwork promotional badges, visitor’s comments and ratings, digital certificates, and live informative artwork popularity reports.

Submitting to this dual exhibition and publication art opportunity is free of charge, and a small fixed selection fee of USD 40 applies to selected artists only.
