The Engage Art Contest is a juried competition for original visual art, music video, film and performing arts. The theme of the contest is the Spiritual Battle described in Ephesians 6:10-20 and related verses. You can develop your artwork to illuminate any part of the Ephesians passage or any other Scripture, as long as you can relate it back to that passage in some way. There is no requirement to use war imagery.
The Engage Art Contest invites participants to submit art based on the Spiritual Battle topic as found in Ephesians 6:10-20. Some artists might find this focus unusual, even off putting. It’s important to remember that artists have been working from this source material for centuries. Now is the time for this generation to contribute a contemporary sensibility to the depiction of the grand story. The themes are evergreen and provide fodder for a broad array of artistic response. And rest assured, when using scripture as inspiration for artwork, you are in good company!
The Engage Art Contest seeks to mine the deep vein of artistic creativity around a scriptural theme that is both laser-focused and eternal. The Spiritual Battle has raged from before recorded history until the present moment. Humans play a critical and sometimes unwitting part in this confrontation between Good and Evil. The Word of God is meant to aid us in this endeavor, providing both our offense and our defense, critical information, a playbook, inspiration, direction, sanctuary, and fortification.
Artists from all backgrounds have taken inspiration from the Christian Scriptures for millennia, and this contest is for anyone who’s interested in using the arts to engage the themes around the Spiritual Battle.
Everyone in North America, including Canada, the United States, Mexico, all the Central American countries and the islands in the Caribbean.
