Ranked in Top 80 with tiger painting in Malaysian online art competition

24 November, 2022

Similar to the previous year, this autumn also saw the Malaysia International online juried art competition 2022. The themes for the competition were the same as the previous year: landscapes and animals. I participated in the animals category last autumn, and since I have been diligently painting animals for several years, I wanted to participate in the competition again this autumn. After some consideration, I decided to submit a tiger painting, which I had completed earlier in the year for my daughter, and a watercolor painting of a forest workhorse that I had painted for a local solo exhibition in the spring.

The results of the first round of judging were announced at the end of October, and to my delight, the tiger painting was among the selected works. This fall, the competition received a record number of submissions, as the organizer, IFAM Global (Malaysia International Online Juried Art Competitions), reported a total of 1,157 paintings from 53 countries! From this number, 217 paintings were selected to advance.

The results of the second round of judging were announced on November 15, 2022. I was truly surprised that the tiger painting was still among the 80 selected paintings! Being part of the TOP 80 out of 1,157 submitted paintings is significant for me, especially considering the presence of highly skilled and renowned artists. The list of selected artists can be found in IFAM Global’s publication.
