Art Competition: TEDxUniSA x UniSA Art Club 'Emergence'

Hi everyone, we’re happy to announce that we’re holding a competition in collaboration with TEDxUniSA, and need your artwork! The competition will be part of an upcoming TEDxUniSA event centred all around emergence in Adelaide and South Australia, and we would love to see what this means to you. Think as broadly as you’d like, and express yourself through your art!

The top three entries will all receive tickets to the TEDxUniSA 'Emergence' event in August, as well as having their artwork featured in the journal which will be found in each of the TEDxUniSA tote bags along with some exclusive TEDxUniSA goodies. In addition to this, the first place prize winner will receive a $50 gift voucher! All entries will also have the chance to be featured in the exhibition on the day of the TEDxUniSA Conference!

Competition Brief:
Please read carefully before entering the competition

Please attach an artist's statement to your artwork.

Entries close 11:59pm 30th May.
Please email your artworks to art.club@usasa.sa.edu.au or send via Facebook

If you attended the Urban Sketching Day Trip, we encourage you to work on your artwork for the competition!

We also have two Studio Sessions dedicated to the theme of 'emergence' from 2-4pm at DB5-21:

13th May 2019: Idea development session
Bring your sketches from the day trip and develop your idea to enter the competition! Or come up with a new idea and use our free materials to make artwork.

FREE canvases provided.

20th May 2019: Adelaide themed session
Continue your painting from the previous session or start another piece of artwork! We will be providing snacks, which will be our still life subject which we can later eat. We encourage artwork to be entered into the competition.

FREE Adelaide snacks ...Think Fruchocs, Haighs, Farmers Union Iced tea, etc. The snacks are free but you're encouraged to incorporate them into your artwork!

You are more than welcome to attend if even if you have not participated in the previous events!

NOTE: Artwork entered in the competition will be judged based on the idea and the artist's statement.
