We manually choose the artists that appear in the 'featured artist' section on artweb.com. Only paying members can be featured.
Being featured can give you a small amount of extra attention. But it doesn't affect your placement in the Google or artweb.com search results etc. The list of featured artists is updated and edited on an ongoing basis.
There's no notification procedure if an artist is selected, so you may have been in the list already without knowing.
Also we don't accept submissions, so please don't contact us requesting to be listed.
