Artwork Guidelines

Oil Painting

Short Film / Documentary

Oil Painting

Each artwork should be a showcase of the artist’s own culturale heritages and/or country.

Entrants can apply refined/classical oil painting techniques to depict their impressions of their country, society and/or culture. This could include ancient culture, historical legends, traditional craftsmanship, daily life, local towns and communities.

Due to the nature of the theme, and to best illustrate the cultural subjects and understandings of the world’s societies, we are only accepting styles of Realism, Renaissance, Baroque, Classical, and Romantic with depictive narrations. An uplifting painting with an insightful message and storyline is highly desirable.

The semi-finalists will be notified upon the artwork’s delivery, as well as details on framing for the final award ceremony and artwork exhibition. All submitted oil paintings are qualified for online public exhibition and artwork auction. The details are to be announced.
