Impressions of the World

One of the unique benefits of International Competition is that it offers both cash rewards and continual career discovery on the world stage.

Socrates said, “An unexamined life is not worth living.” There is nothing like the arts to inspire and provoke us to ponder and examine with great care.

The theme Impressions of the World invites you to depict your own cultures, traditions, challenges and hopes. We are the ones to record our lives, to preserve our creativities and to elevate human spirits and global societies through the medium of art.

The resulting artwork will be a showcase of the world’s cultures, and a focal point for cultural awakening and a revival of traditional arts.

We are inviting the following entries:

  • Oil Painting
  • (Realism or Classic style)
  • Chinese Painting/LianHuanHua
  • (Traditional stories using Chinese drawing technique and story lines)
  • Short Film/Documentary
  • (35 minutes maximum, English subtitles required).
