SAITAMA, Japan, Nov. 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ - "Art Olympia," a new international open art competition held once in every two years, aims to discover young talented artists and to support them so that their global art careers may flourish. The competition will give away a total of approximately $500,000 in cash awards and prizes to 180 selected artists from around the world.
The second Art Olympia will accept two-dimensional artworks only. This time, photographic works will be also accepted.
Artworks, submitted from around the world, will first be reviewed at regional entry bases and then finally in Tokyo. A primary review will be done by using the images of artworks and the final review with real artworks. Moreover, the final review will use a point-rating system, allowing the public to check the reviewing process.
With an eye to supporting young artists, Art Olympia has created the Student Category, allowing students to apply for both All-Entrants and Student Categories. A panel of jurors, comprising experts from various fields, provides aspiring artists with a rare chance to get their artworks reviewed by art experts.
