About the Volcano Art Prize (VAP)
By Hitesh Lohani, LEAD Group Volunteer, and Pristabhumi e-Magazine Publisher
Following the success of the inaugural environmental Volcano Art Prize (VAP) competition in 2012, all those entries are in the VAP Archives at http://volcanoartprize.com/vap-archive/ and the Judge’s decision for the 2013 Volcano Art Prize Competition are out now (see below). We received many interesting artworks from all the participants and would like to thank all for your support and participation. However, if any of you missed out from this year’s competition, you can now submit your artwork for the 2014 Volcano Art Prize competition. We would love to receive an entry from you. Be part of a worthy environmental art competition and take a step forward to help create a lead-safe world.
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!
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).
Browse our websites – www.lead.org.au and as of today, www.leadsafeworld.com – to develop your own ideas. You can also see the 2012 and2013 Volcano Art Prize finalists’ entries, for inspiration, at http://volcanoartprize.com/vap-archive/ and http://volcanoartprize.com/peoples-choice/ respectively.
Please read the Conditions of Entry at the bottom of the home page at http://volcanoartprize.com/ especially noting:
The single 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.
These are the 13 winning entries, 2 of them by children. It was terrific that 7 children entered the competition this year, and all 7 won their image printed on a Pictureproducts mug.
