Embracing Our Differences – 2025 Exhibit

Embracing Our Differences – 2025 Exhibit

Since 2004, Embracing Our Differences has used the power of art and prose to promote inclusion, kindness and respect. One way we accomplish this is through our annual international art exhibition in Sarasota’s Bayfront Park and St. Petersburg’s Poynter Park. The juried exhibit consists of 50 billboard-sized works of art, each accompanied by an inspirational quote.

The winning artworks combine a deep understanding of both medium and message. Awards are given for “Best-in-Show Adult,” “Best-in-Show Student,” and “People’s Choice” categories, with the last chosen by visitors to the exhibit. Adult winners each receive $2,000; students receive $2,000 to be split with their school’s art or writing program.

Artists, photographers, professionals, amateurs, students are asked to submit their interpretation of the theme “enriching lives through diversity and inclusion.”

 Embracing Our Differences invites you to participate in creating a world where differences are embraced and individuality is celebrated. Become a part of this exciting change through your visual art or creative writing submission to the annual Embracing Our Differences juried competition.

Your art must be HORIZONTAL in orientation. Click here to download templates for creating Embracing Our Differences artwork in the proper dimensions.
