The Robot Art Competition and Exhibition!

The 2019 “4th Annual” International Robotic Art Competition with $40,000 in cash prizes is now open for team registration.  The contest’s goal is to challenge teams to produce something visually beautiful with robotics – that is, to have a robot use physical brushes and paint to create an artwork.  Read more about robotic art and the philosophy behind the competition.

Finalists will be exhibited at the 2019 Seattle Art Fair!

The competition is ideal for students or professionals involved in robotics, machine learning and image processing – especially those who have an appreciation for art (or artists with a tech side).   There is no cost to enter and any robotic system can be used. Teams can enter up to 6 paintings in each of the categories of “original artwork” , reinterpreted artwork” where a reference image or existing artwork is used as a reference, and “standard” where everyone paints the same painting (new this year!).  See the Info & Rules page for more.

Below are a few of the submissions from previous years – check out the winners for the 2018, 2017, and 2016 Robot Art Competitions.
