LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - August 17, 2010) -  MAXIMILLIAN GALLERY, art licensors and gallery of emerging, celebrity talent and properties, is pleased to announce its 2010 Speed Racer™ International Art Competition.

Accepting submissions from August 10, 2010 through October 31, 2010, artists of all ages, ranging from emerging to established, are invited to submit new works re-imagining the classic Speed Racer art. Art categories are painting, drawing, photography, digital, print, sculpture and video.

Caradoc Ehrenhalt, MAXIMILLIAN GALLERY Founder, states, "This competition is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for emerging and established artists to showcase their work, expand their influence and profile in the art and art licensing world, and create new art based on the amazing Speed Racer cartoon."

Winning entries will be eligible for sales representation, publication as a limited edition print and perhaps even be licensed for use on products and apparel. The competition offers valuable exposure for artists and their art with a panel, public and founder's vote and numerous opportunities for all entrants, including unprecedented recognition and exposure to the art world, mention in press releases, potential inclusion in a Speed Racer exhibition, and exposure for their existing art, as well as the new Speed Racer art they create.

Ehrenhalt continues, "We are eager to receive submissions and see what undiscovered talent may emerge and what great new art will be created by emerging and established artists."

James Rocknowski, President of Speed Racer Enterprises, adds, "Speed Racer is loved by tens of millions of fans worldwide, and this official Speed Racer art competition is exciting to us and sure to be very exciting to the fans."
