About Us


It all started when…

Welcome to Crash Artist, the art contest site that gives most of the money from submission fees back to the artists instead of the pockets of executives. We're dedicated to giving photographers, fashion designers, and traditional and digital artists, alike the opportunity to win cash, get recognized and advance their careers.

 What makes us so different? Crash Artist was founded in 2017 by designer M.A. Simon, who grew up entering art and film competitions. He struggled to pay the high submission fees of $50 to $200 and hated waiting 3 to 6 months to hear back and never knew where all the money from his submission fees went. He had a simple idea for a solution. An artist or designer would submit a tiny $1.99 fee, get the results the next day and 51% of the cash from the submission fees would be given back to the artists as rewards.

Why the name "Crash Artist"?  Since the results come back fast like the "crash" in crash course, the name Crash Artist just makes since...and the domain name and trademark was available :). 

The site has come a long way from its beginnings working out of a basement in Baltimore, MD. Our truly one of a kind platform now helps artists and designers from all over the world make money and advance their careers.

We hope you enjoy the Crash Artist platform as much as we enjoy working on it. If you have any questions or comments, please don't hesitate to contact us at info@crashartist.com.
