Budding artists across the globe are invited to join the SHE IS MORE Youth Art Competition to celebrate the spirit and value of women. The competition welcomes visual and performance artists 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 43,000 people worldwide.

COMPETITION OPENS FEBRUARY 28TH

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.

 

Competition Guidelines
