Guidelines on the International Competition

for the Sea Art Festival 2013
The Sea Art Festival in Busan has established a unique exhibition style though a blend of the natural environment, the sea, and hightech contemporary art. It began with the affection and devotion of local artists in 1987,marking its 26th anniversary this year and becoming an event which represents the living history of art of Busan.The Sea Art Festival, which has been integrated with main exhibition along with the birth of the Busan Biennale, has been held in odd-numbered years since 2011(an off-year for the Busan Biennale), becoming a new cultural independent brand representing the city of Busan.

The Sea Art Festival 2013 will be held at Songdo Beach with the theme of ‘With Songdo : Remembrance·Marks·People’. In 1913, it opened as the first public beach in Korea. Songdo Beach, which was called East Napoli in Asia during the Japanese colonial era, marks its 100th anniversary this year, with attempts to recover its old reputation through various renovations and maintenance projects. With this in mind, we wish that as many artists, domestic and international, will apply to participate in this International Competition for the Sea Art Festival 2013, which will be held at Songdo Beach.

  〈 ’With Songdo : Remembrance·Marks·People’ 〉  
   
The Sea Art Festival 2013 with the theme of ‘With Songdo : Remembrance ·Marks ·People’ is planned on the basis of history (Remembrance), Locality (Marks) of Songdo Beach and the identity of Sea Art Festival (People). The Sea Art Festival 2013, in accordance with the 100th anniversary of Songdo Beach, will attempt to ‘remember’ the history of Songdo Beach by discovering the stories of the ‘People’ and the ‘Marks’ they made through out history.

The Sea Art Festival 2013 will exhibit 3 coexisting themes, with the first being the theme of ‘Remembrance’. A variety of attractions such as paintings, photos and video are planned to be on display to provide a rich and memorable experience for the opening of the ‘Sea Art Festival’s’ 26 year-old history as well as Songdo Beach’s 100th anniversary. The second keyword, ‘Marks’ dreams of balancing the natural environment and artworks of Songdo Beach through establishing various pieces of sculptures and installation artwork. In addition, the exhibition will offer an exotic experience in the balance of nature and art to people, who visit Sea Art Festival 2013 by setting up a photo zone in consideration for the passage in time.

Call for entries for DCMF World Press Freedom Cartoon Contest

comp_ad_resized2

To mark World Press Freedom Day on May 3, Doha Centre for Media Freedom has organised its inaugural “DCMF World Press Freedom Cartoon Contest.” The centre is looking forward to receiving cartoons from artists all over the world, depicting the theme of “Media Freedom.”

May 3 was declared World Press Freedom Day by the UN General Assembly In 1993, and each year it serves as a reminder of the difficulties faced by journalists and members of the media around the world.

Cartoons can often express stories, news and opinions more clearly than words, and at times of conflict, cartoonists and artists are regularly among the first to be silenced.

For World Press Freedom Day in 2013, Doha Centre for Media Freedom would like to honour the bravery and creativity of courageous cartoonists and journalists who use their work to battle against restrictions imposed on the media and society in general.

DCMF has launched its inaugural “DCMF World Press Freedom Cartoon Competition,” and looks forward to seeing how cartoonists around the world depict issues related to media freedom.

Visions of Change | call for artwork submissions for UN publications

Deadline: March 17, 2013

Website: http://www.unrisd.org

The United Nations Research Institute for Social Development (UNRISD) is seeking submissions of artwork on the theme “Visions of Change” to illustrate new editions of UNRISD publications.

“Visions of Change” encourages creative thinkers from all over the world to submit artwork that illustrates key social development values, themes and issues. A selection of UNRISD’s most forward-looking and influential publications from the last 50 years—UNRISD Classics—will be re-released in 2013, with covers featuring artwork selected from submissions to Visions of Change. Selected artwork will also be exhibited at the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland, in 2013.

Sarah Cook, UNRISD’s Director, said: “the Institute has been doing policy-relevant research for social change since 1963, with some studies being considered quite groundbreaking. It is not with nostalgia that we celebrate our 50th anniversary, but with the conviction that sometimes it is worth looking back in order to move forward, as one would do with a rear-view mirror”. She added: “Since some ‘UNRISD Classics’ have never been released digitally, making them available online is a way to make them more accessible”.

Jenifer Freedman, Head of Communications and Outreach at UNRISD, said: “by inviting the submission of original artwork to illustrate the covers, we hope not just to reframe the publications themselves, but also to reflect their global significance and influence. By reaching out to a wide audience and welcoming many forms of visual art, we aim for inclusion and diversity, which are among the core values of UNRISD”.

Themes and submissions

Submitted artwork must represent at least one of the following key topics or values that guide UNRISD in its past and present work.

· Key topics: Sustainable Development, Social Policy, Poverty Reduction, Migration, Governance, Gender, Corporate Social Responsibility, Civil Society and Social Movements
· Values: Progressive Social Change, Collaboration, Diversity of Ideas and Open Debate

UNRISD welcomes artwork from any discipline—from painting to collage to photography. We are accepting submissions to “Visions of Change” UNTIL 17 March 2013.

To apply, simply download and complete the Submission Form. Please take care to read the Guidelines and the Terms and Conditions before submitting. The United National Research Institute for Social Development (UNRISD) is seeking submissions of artwork on the theme “Visions of Change” to illustrate new editions of UNRISD publications.
