The Natural Cannabis Company created
The contest officially began Feb. 20 and runs for 30 days; entry is open through March 20, 2023, to anyone over the age of 18 from anywhere in the world. This year marks the 10th year of the High Art Competition, and the theme is Love.

Seven judges will oversee the contest this year, and the top 150 finalists will be announced April 9. The top 150 finalists will be notified via the email address used at time of submission and must complete a form in order to accept their placement. The top 150 also have the option to share their piece on the High Art Gallery website.
The final winners will be announced on April 20, 2023.
It’s free to enter, and artists can submit as many works as they’d like that fit the theme. Artists are also allowed to submit works created before the contest started.
First place takes home $15,000 and a $10,000 donation made in the winner’s name to one of the following
There will also be a Secret Five Award Winners, given to five pieces for categories chosen at random by the judges each year, each with a $500 prize. These categories are developed after the final 150 are chosen.
For non-artists or those who want to support in other ways, High Art also features artists from previous years on their website via merchandise, and a portion of those sales goes directly back to those creators.
“The participation has just been amazing,” Natural Cannabis Company’s Dona Frank said in the pre-launch video. “Every year it just gets better and better. […] I don’t think we could be more grateful.”
