Below are links and quick descriptions of the websites I have found, or other people have shared with me, about Christian cartoon art and modern art. I have tried to make sure all sites are useful for Christian artists in any country.

If you happen to know of any others, please comment below or email me as I would love to check them out and add them to this list!
Engage Art Contest
A free art contest created by Christians that is held once a year, world-wide. Anyone can join (you don’t have to be a Christian) and the contest theme is always based on the spiritual battle in the book of Ephesians. They also do online Bible studies and prayers, a Facebook group, write some helpful blogs, and offer a free course about submitting your video or visual art to the contest (which can help you with submitting your art anywhere, really).
