The Coffee Art Project gives artists the chance to showcase their artwork in New York City and make a difference by helping people through their art.

The Coffee Art Project is a high profile art competition linked to the theme of coffee. The initiative provides a platform for artists to showcase their work while raising valuable funds for Project Waterfall, a charity initiative to deliver clean water and sanitation to coffee growing communities around the globe. The competition has taken place in London, Amsterdam, Milan and Paris, and is now launching for the first time in New York.

All submitted artworks will be evaluated by our panel of judges, and the top 30-40 artworks will be selected for an exhibition at The New York Coffee Festival 2015. The festival is taking place from 25-27 of September 2015. In addition, the winner of the competition receives $1,500, and the three runners up receive $500.

Artist applications for The Coffee Art Project are open now online at The deadline to register is 23 August at 11:00PM EST, and the deadline to submit artwork is 4 September at 4:00PM EST. Please urge artists to review the eligibility criteria before submitting their application.
