Mexico 2017

As an organization, the Social Network Art Competition-Expo (SNAC-expo) stands at the forefront of the limitless potential of our global social network and the cultural imperative of experiencing physical artwork. SNAC-expo holds national, web-based competitions that pool of artists’ works on a per country basis, and then opens the voting process to art enthusiasts from around the world, where they select the semi finalists to be juried by a premier panel of art curators. The final selection SNAC-expo award winners are then fully funded to promote, display and sell their artwork in select venues around the world.

In 2017 SNAC-expo partners together with Consulate General of Mexico in San Francisco. Consulate General supports Mexican communities living in California and Hawaii, protects and defends their rights and promotes Mexican culture in the area. As a result of this close cooperation, we are happy to announce our new Art Competition 2017 – ‘Mexico in a blink’​.

Artist submissions for the Competition: SNAC-expo Mexico opens on June 1, 2017. Registration is free and open to all Mexican citizens (residing in Mexico or abroad) above the age of 18. The North American tour of the artwork begins in September 2017.

SNAC–expo art competition and tour is a great opportunity for artists to have their work expertly curated and exhibited throughout the US in different venues and promoted in our online store.

Congratulations to all who participated in our Mexico 2017 Art Competition!
