How to submit your artwork to enter the contest?
You cannot submit your artwork for the contest; artworks are chosen automatically based on the number of artwork views by the website users within the past week. Eighteen (18) most viewed artworks are selected to enter the contest regardless of their genre and style. Artworks that have previously won in one of the nominations, or artworks marked as sold during the selection process, are not allowed to enter the contest.
How many paintings of one artist can be selected for the contest?
Only the most viewed painting can participate in the contest. Thus, the list of nominees for the competition is formed on the basis of the amount of views of paintings in the previous week. Then, the system selects for the contest 18 most viewed paintings, one painting from one artist.
How to check your artwork views?
You can track your artwork views in the Statistics section of the Artworks tab, and also on the page of the artwork itself in the Description of Artwork.
How artwork views are counted?
The number of artwork views is counted automatically by the website system by adding up all artwork pageviews (sessions per page) performed by the registered and unregistered visitors of the website.
The website system does not take into account fake views that can be generated through entering and exiting the web page multiple times, refreshing the web page or using other forms of fake traffic generation.
How to increase the number of your artwork views?
There are several effective ways to get more artwork views:
1. Share a link to your artwork page on your social media profile (Facebook, Linkedin).
Go to the artwork page and click on the Share button, then publish it in the social media post. The system will publish your artwork in the newsfeed as long as you are logged in to your social media account.
2. Send a direct link to your artwork page through a text message, instant messenger or e-mail asking your friends and contacts to view your artwork in the JAG online gallery.
Direct link to the artwork can be found:
- on your artwork page itself by copying the page URL (address bar at the top of the page).
The more of your friends and contacts follow the social media links or go to your artwork page directly, the more artwork views will be taken into account, which will increase your chances to be part of the contest.
How do I find out that my artwork was nominated for the "Best Painting of the week"?
We will send you an email, if your artwork is selected to participate in the contest.
How does voting work and when contest results are published?

How is the contest winner determined?
The artwork that receives the most votes will win the contest and will be tagged as the “Best Painting of the Week". The artist of the best painting will receive additional rating points as the contest winner, which will be reflected on their profile.
How is the winner determined, if several artworks receive equal number of votes?
If several paintings received the equal number of votes making the selection of the winner impossible, this status is awarded to the painting that received more views during the selection for the contest.
Abuse of trust and violation of the contest rules.
Only real persons can vote for the contesting artworks.
The website administration is monitoring the transparency of the voting. In case of breach of contest rules or detection of fraudulent attempts to increase votes by using inactive profiles of social media, bots or unconfirmed e-mail addresses, these votes will not be counted. In case of detection of such violations perpetrated by some artists, they will be disqualified and not allowed to participate in further voting.
