About Art Prize

Akron Art Prize is an exciting, inclusive, publicly-determined arts experience. The program engages the public through opportunities for face-to-face interaction with local artists and a digital voting platform to determine the winners of a generous portfolio of awards. It also enriches our arts community as an affordable, accessible entryway for visual artists into the Downtown Akron arts district, professional development opportunities and peer-to-peer mentoring with fellow artists.

How to Vote

Available for Apple and Android devices, the Akron Art Prize app is the fastest and easiest way to vote. Use it to view art entries, learn about the artists, curate your own list of favorite artists and cast your votes within the Akron Art Prize footprint. Turn on your location settings, log in to the app, check-in and enjoy the artwork.
