When I went to the Culture Japan Night the other day, I met a young lady named Bei Cao who told me about an art competition she was organising. I thought this sounded pretty interesting, and could be a great opportunity for anyone with artistic flair to take part. Obviously, being me, I instantly thought of something Japan-related, but of course it doesn’t have to be! 😉 Here are the details below:
What it is about
This competition is designed for young artists to express and inspire their own generation.
It is not about techniques; with passion we believe everybody could be an artist in his/her life.
Be a participant, you will choose a theme provided below and artistically illustrate your understanding of it.
Future; Young; Difference; Challenge; Love； London
All artists 15-30 years of age at the time of application may apply with their work without any restrictions concerning nationality or education disciplines.
There is no entry fee; all welcome.
Wednesday 19th March 2014
Successful participants will be informed by email by the end of March and will receive an exhibition in London.
