How can I spread the word online?
Do you represent artists?
WCA does not act as an artist agency, representative or a production company although we do share humanitarian messages created by our Award recipients by including their winning song or artwork on our website and social media. Unlike agencies, WCA doesn’t represent the artist but promotes the artist’s humanitarian message.
Do you organise concerts and exhibitions?
WCA occasionally partners with event organisers for the World Citizen Artists Awards.
How can I be featured in WCA’s online magazine, Artist Voices?
WCA is very selective about the artists featured in Artist Voices. These artists are usually Award recipients, occasionally finalists, and on some occasions members can apply. Artists who are being featured in Artist Voices are provided with a list of questions which provide the information necessary to prepare an article. The Artist Voices editor determines the final content of all articles. Artists may choose to withdraw their opportunity to be featured in an article. Subscribe to our newsletter to stay current with our online magazine updates and to be aware of special opportunities to apply.

What’s in it for us?
Charities often need help with promotion for their cause and we have a great artist community who is engaged with many humanitarian issues. We’ve been connecting charities with artists since 2016 through the ONE FOR ALL Awards initiative. Some of the participants are now planning a trip to personally visit the charities they supported.
Do we have to be part of your Awards to get artists engagements?
You can contact our coordinators via firstname.lastname@example.org and send a description of your charity and let us know what you need. We will check with our members to see if anyone is interested in supporting your charity using their art or music.
Please note that WCA receives many requests and is very selective with the charities they connect with artists. Charities must be able to demonstrate that they have a track record of making a noticeable impact in a humanitarian cause. We are looking for more than just a large following or fan base from the charities we work with — we want action!
WCA is very open-minded when it comes to new skills or talents that can help grow our community. Follow us on social media to find out when we have positions open, and don’t hesitate to send your CV and/or social media profile to email@example.com. When we have a position available that suits your profile, you will be contacted by us.
If you have additional questions, please send us an email!
