29th May:Art Competition

Hi All ,here is a very exciting Art Competition that everyone should enter as 1 Euro goes to charity for every entry...so get creative!!!!!

Image preview

The theme for this year’s Art Materials Company’s Art Competition is:​ Freedom in a Time of Constraint. ​This can be interpreted in any way as long as it is visual art (dance, writing, music and other other creative expressions are not accepted for this year’s competition). Here at Art Materials Company, we believe that everyone is creative but many people haven’t discovered ‘how’ yet or they get discouraged because they believe: ‘I’m not good enough’; ‘I’m not an artist’; ‘I can’t draw’. Who said? Challenge yourself to discover your creative side! Taste of a new found freedom! Those of you more comfortable in your creative skin, try new ways of expressing yourself in your artwork. Break out into new found creativity. It’s a great time to do it. If not now, when?

Judges will be looking for creativity above all. So, brainstorm and think outside of the literal and figurative box. When you are completing your entry form, be ready to write in one sentence on your entry form: Freedom in a Time of Constraint is: ____________

Size Of Artwork
This year we will be receiving all entries online, so you are free to make your art piece as big or as small as you want! However, on your entry form, you will need to state the size of your artwork. Approximate dimensions are fine. Be sure to take ONE clear (use enough light and hold still ) photo of your work.

Use Of Materials
Anything considered visual art: using any means including but not exclusive of: block printing, calligraphy, chalk, charcoal, clay, colláge, crayon, decoupage, embossing, etching, ink, metal, mosaic, paint, pencil, sand, stone, fabric… And, we encourage you to challenge yourself to use a media you’ve never tried. Why not? It should be fun! If you have a question whether your medium would be accepted, please contact us here.

Artwork must be unaided (unless it is a collaborative piece) and must be original work. Remember because the judges will be looking for creativity, use your unique artistic ‘voice’: how you see the world around you and respond to things is completely unique to you, so, show us. For the collaborative piece, two types of creative expression must be clearly visible.

Number Of Entries
Entrants are allowed one entry only unless they are also entering a piece in the collaboration of relatives category.

The collaborative piece is ONE piece made by TWO people. Entrants must be related in some way. Parent and child can be parent in their 70’s and ‘child’ in their 50’s. It can include a guardian and child, a parent and adopted child, an uncle and nephew, a great aunt and grand nephew, a brother and sister. If you have any doubt about whether your team is right for creative collaboration in this competition, please contact us by email at: competition@artmaterials.ie​.
Also, it must be clear that two of you worked on your art piece by definitively showing two styles, two angles, two ideas…in some way indicating that not just one person did the entry piece. Please stay safe when doing this and only choose relatives with whom you’ve already had contact during this viral season.

Information Required
A fully completed entry form is required to be filled out. This can be filled out on our website here​. Please note that incomplete entry forms cannot be accepted and will disqualify the entrant from the competition.

Closing Date
The closing date is the 9th of June 2020. All entries must be received by midnight.

Judging Process
Once all entries are received after the final entry date of the 9th of June, a public vote will commence on the 12th of June. This will take place on our website. All entrants will receive a link by email to the public vote. Public voting will end on the 15th of June and the shortlisted artwork (10 pieces with the relative largest number of votes) will move forward to the next stage where judges will make the final decision. Judges will also be able to select pieces of artwork they feel deserve to move forward regardless of how many votes the piece received from the public. The prizewinners will be announced on the 30th of June. We reserve the right to extend the date of announcement if the number of entrants exceeds our expectations. There will be a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winner per category.
