Volcano Art Prize (VAP) 2014 People’s Choice Prize is $500!
By Elizabeth O’Brien, President, The LEAD Group
Following the inaugural environmental Volcano Art Prize (VAP) competition in 2012, and the recently-concluded 2013 VAP, all those entries are in the VAP Archives at http://volcanoartprize.com/vap-archive/ - you can now submit your artworks for the 2014 Volcano Art Prize competition. Some artists each year have been so keen to submit more than one entry, that we’ve changed the rules so that each artist submit an entry in the 2014 VAP, can pay $10 for each extra entry and submit as many entries as they like.
But the big news is that, thanks to generous donations from Ian Smith and from our VAP sponsor Pictureproducts, the cash prize for the People’s Choice will rise from $100 in 2013 to $500 in 2014 VAP!
For your first entry, it’s only $10 for adults in OECD countries to enter, and other adults and all earthlings under the age of 18 enter for free! You have more chances to win the cash prize if you submit more entries!
Simply create a landscape-orientation image on the theme of lead-safety, by photographing or scanning anything – an artwork or real-life - related to lead (it’s in people/animals/plants/old paint/soil/food/water/products etc) or lead-safety (while renovating/shooting/working with lead) or lead poisoning prevention (testing for lead/detoxing lead from the body).
Browse our websites – www.lead.org.au and www.leadsafeworld.com – to develop your own ideas. You can also see the 2012 and 2013 Volcano Art Prize entries, for inspiration, at http://volcanoartprize.com/vap-archive/ and 2014 VAP entries at http://volcanoartprize.com/peoples-choice/
Please read the Conditions of Entry at the bottom of the home page at http://volcanoartprize.com/ especially noting:
Each digital image must be between 1 MB and 3 MB and in landscape orientation, not portrait orientation. That is, winning entries will be printed in colour on a landscape A4 page.
Submit entries online at http://volcanoartprize.com/submitentry/ before midnight on Monday 25th August 2014.
