Tom of Finland Foundation is proud to announce the 11th Tom of Finland Emerging Artist Competition.

3rd August 2022, 2:48 pm


ToFF presents six internationally renowned judges for this year’s competition: interdisciplinary artist Honey Dijon; previous Competition winner Mr Gruts; creative director of Diesel Glenn Martens; professor in art history Richard Meyer; multimedia artist Slava Mogutin; and art dealer Graham Steele.

In 1993, the Foundation initiated this contest based on Tom of Finland’s principles and ethical codes. As an artist, mentor and activist for equality, Tom encouraged freedom of expression and strived to remove the stigma inhibiting artistic practice. The Competition provides an unrestrained platform for artists to express what is in their minds and hearts truly.

The Tom of Finland Emerging Artist Competition gives emerging artists the unique opportunity to have their work viewed and judged by a group of highly respected professionals. Previous winners, now established names in the art world, include Patrick Lee, Hector Silva, Marc DeBauch, Douglas Holquist, Nancy Peach and Jay Jorgensen. In addition to awards, ToFF gives winners a Tom of Finland fine art print, a copy of a Tom of Finland publication, exhibition opportunities and promotional support. This year the Grand Prize Winner receives this original, preparatory drawing by Tom of Finland.
