Why do artists enter art competitions?

by Margaret Modjeski in My Opinion,,,,,,

Today I dropped off a watercolor at a show being held by an art association that I am a member of near my home in Florida. As I helped hang the art I wondered why artists enter art shows. Is it to be part of the art community? Is it because we want recognition? Is it because we hope someone will see our piece and praise it or perhaps even buy it? Is it because we just want to share our art with the world? I am not sure why I entered this competition but I will say
I am proud to see my artwork hanging on the wall along with the pieces of both professionals and amateur artists. What do you think? Why do artists enter art competitions?
