What are Tiny Treasures?

Tiny Treasures are 2 ½” x 3 ½” pieces of completely ORIGINAL art, no thicker than 3/4”, created by artists at least 14 years old. Enter as many pieces as you’d like starting April  1 through June 15, 2022 in AWA's competition/exhibit/ fundraiser.   You can win $150 for 1st Place, $125 for 2nd, $100 for 3rd and $10 for best title.  Another 12 Tiny Treasures will be chosen to also be in AWA's annual Timely Treasures pocket calendar and each will receive a $25 award. Additionally, there is a $50 award for the art group/ organization with the most entries.  Look for the 2022 Entry Form in mid-March.

Tiny Treasures must be of original concept and design.  Please read the following article by Jean Lang, "Original or Copy." 

All Tiny Treasures are exhibited on this website and are available for sale.  See AWA 2021 Fundraiser section below.  Tiny Treasures are also displayed at the annual State Exhibit.
