Welcome to the Only Rejected Works Gallery! 

The outpouring of support I received from this social media post was truly heartwarming. What started as a mere idea, soon became something much more significant. The encouragement and enthusiasm from everyone, some of whom were moved to tears, propelled me forward with determination. It became clear that I had to turn this vision into reality. And now, here it is –

In this bold initiative, I've created a welcoming space for artists, giving them the recognition they deserve. While I'm considering a physical gallery in the future, our online presence ensures broader exposure without logistical complications.  

The only submission requirement is that one or more of your previous works must have been rejected at some point. Here are just a few examples:

  • Gallery Submissions

  • Call-to-art

  • Contests

  • Magazines

  • Music Submissions

  • Publishers

  • Marketplaces

  • Schools

  • Casting Calls

  • Comedy Routines

  • Photography

  • Makeup Artist

  • Composer

  • Fashion

  • Poetry

If you're an artist interested in showcasing your work here, I'd love to hear from you. I don't ask for commissions, fees, or anything in return. My passion for supporting others fuels this project, making it a true labor of love.


My process of everyone being accepted operates on a fair rotating basis to ensure adequate space for artists to have ample time to be noticed. I do have limited space, even in the online area. But I'll do my best to ensure artists get their moment to shine. 

I need to emphasize that everyone has tremendous value! Every artist's work, even if it has been "rejected" elsewhere, is a beautiful expression of creativity. The opinions of a few industry decision-makers don't define an artist's worth.  

BIG Disclaimer: I welcome submissions of material, but please be informed that content of any kind containing racism, offensive language, hate speech, discrimination, or any other forms of harmful or inappropriate material will not be accepted, and I refuse to be associated with such. It is solely at the discretion of the Only Rejected Works Gallery to decide which artistic materials are featured and when they are showcased. Anyone under the age of 18, must have a parent or legal guardian submit on their behalf and agree to the terms outlined. While I may promote artists, it is important to note that my knowledge of them is based solely on the information they provide, and I don't conduct extensive inquiries beyond that. Furthermore, I cannot be held responsible for any adverse consequences facilitated through my platform, as I neither endorse nor have any involvement in such outcomes. I want to emphasize that the opinions expressed by artists in their statements and body of work do not reflect my views, nor the views of fellow artists associated with the Only Rejected Works Gallery. I am not endorsing, promoting their personal beliefs, or aligning with them. If you encounter anything that you believe exceeds the boundaries of freedom of speech, please do not hesitate to reach out to me, and I will address the issue promptly. Transactions between contributors are independent of me. It is the responsibility of each artist to manage their sales, maintain their portfolios, update their current work, and establish business contacts, as they would normally. I aim to support community building while also helping individuals feel more empowered. However, I make no promises and engage in this endeavor purely out of passion for the arts and the people behind them. Although efforts will be made, it's important to note that not everyone is guaranteed to be featured on this website in the event of unforeseen circumstances. If you do not agree to these terms, please do not proceed. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
