READ THE BRIEF
We are looking for engaging art proposals, which provide a link or connection to the site and surrounding environment in a unique and creative way. We would encourage the participants to explore various facets of the location, including but not limited to, architecture, design, public spaces and the surrounding environment. We would also encourage participants to think about the location in a wider context, and how local, regional, and international flavour might be relevant within the subject matter of the entries. The subject matter could be conveyed in an abstract or realistic manner and is completely open to interpretation by the artist.
MAKE SURE YOU MEET ALL COMPETITION REQUIREMENTS
Each entrant may submit up to a maximum of two (2) entries. All entries must be submitted as digital files. Entry files must be submitted in JPEG, PNG or PDF format and the maximum submission size should not exceed 12MB. All entrants should be prepared to send a hi-resolution print-quality (300DPI) file should their entry be among those shortlisted or selected as the winner.
Entries must include:

Proposal Images – your proposal images can be in JPEG, PNG or PDF format. We suggest you provide full and detailed images, in order for us to see the overall composition as well as details of your work.
