The Coffee Art Project provides a great opportunity for talented artists gain high profile exposure and showcase their work to a vast new audience while raising valuable funds to support Project Waterfall.

The Brief

Artists that apply will need to submit a piece of artwork that represents a creative, unique and personal connection to the concept of 'coffee' or 'coffee shop experience'. The work submitted can be any form of art, providing that it has a justifiable conceptual link to coffee or coffee shop experience.

The Artwork needs to be a unique piece, not a reproduction of others.  Prints need to be a limited edition of 15, not more. All the artworks submitted need to be signed by the artists as evidence of uniqueness and authenticity and not reproduction. We will not be accepting copies or unauthentic pieces.

The top 30-40 pieces will be exhibited and judged at
The New York Coffee Festival (11-13 October). 

The competition is free to enter, and we also accept work on behalf of teams or individuals.

A few exhibited pieces will also be selected to be displayed at
The Los Angeles Coffee Festival, to be held 8 -10 November, 2019. All works will be safely transported there and back, pending sale of any work at either festival. 

Before registering to take part,
please read carefully through the Terms and Conditions. 


Please note that the Coffee Art Project team will email you regularly once you have registered with reminders to hand in your declaration and description forms before the deadlines. We understand that artwork takes time to submit, however any work received without the relevant forms will not be accepted.
