Inviting all budding artists between the ages of 10-18 from anywhere—from the back streets to the Wall Streets of the world—to join the SHE IS MORE Youth Art Competition to celebrate the spirit and value of women!
The competition welcomes visual and performance artists from all walks of life to submit their original work for the opportunity to be exhibited at the SHE IS MORE Art Exhibition in Singapore this May and featured on IIX Foundation’s publicity materials during its year-long 10th anniversary celebration this year, shared with over 2.2 Million people worldwide.
COMPETITION NOW OPEN!
Deadline: April 9, 2019
She is More: A global celebration of the value of women through art
The value of a woman, like art, is beyond what the eye can see. A woman is one of the most dynamic individuals who often simultaneously assumes the role of caretaker, businesswoman, problem-solver, financier, peacemaker, teacher and community-builder. This competition will celebrate the spirit of everyday women by capturing their courage, strength, passion, empathy and overall value to the world we live in through art.
Celebrate the spirit of everyday women. Submit your artwork that captures the interpretation of the theme “SHE IS MORE.”
This can, for example, show a woman you admire or is important to you; or celebrate how women can play different roles in everyday life; or show how people are helping to empower women. The sky’s the limit: it’s up to you!
