Deadline: 30 July 2014
Open to: any creator interested in billboard art
Award: 3,000 złoty (about 726 Euro)
The Polish festival Art Moves uses billboards in an innovative way. Their usual function is changed and the festival organizers use them not to present advertisements, but moving and thought-provoking art. They put great emphasis on deepened thinking, reflection and awareness rising. Thinking is very closely related to the people. When people change their thinking, deepen their awareness and initiate their reflection, they also change the reality they live in.
The purpose of the competition is to propagate and popularize billboard art and to encourage artists to create art engaged in the reality. From all the entries, the jury will select 10 most interesting works which will be printed and displayed on billboards in the city space during the Art Moves Festival in September and October 2014 in Torun, Poland.
Both individual artists and groups of artists can participate in the competition, regardless nationality, sex, or any other condition.
The best selected work will receive the Main Award in the amount of 3,000 Polish złoty (about 726 Euro).
The works must be submitted by the 30 July 2014, 00:00 CET via electronic mail to the address firstname.lastname@example.org. There is no entry fee. Submitted works are intended to creatively respond to this year’s competition theme: More or less freedom?
The format of the competition work should be 498 cm x 243 cm (196×95.7 inches) in a horizontal layout, 100 dpi, cmyk, tiff.
