AUAF Announces Fine Arts Competition for International Assyrian Artists

Feb. 08

The Assyrian Universal Alliance Foundation announces a call for entries for the 2018 AUAF Fine Arts Competition for International Assyrian Artists. The first of its kind, the competition gives Assyrian visual artists worldwide at any stage of their careers the opportunity to promote their work and enhance their careers. This year's theme is Awakening.

Assyrian artists are invited to submit original pieces in any two-dimensional medium, excluding photography. Art submitted to the competition will be reviewed by an independent panel of expert jurors to ensure a fair and balanced judgement process. Prizes will be awarded to the artists whose work best represent the theme:

  • 1st Place—$5,000
  • 2nd Place—$3,000
  • 3rd Place—$2,000

Last year’s competition was limited to Assyrian artists based in the United States. Sixteen talented artists from across the country entered a total of thirty-nine pieces in the AUAF’s first-ever art competition. Click here to see the winners of the 2017 AUAF Art Competition.

This year’s competition is open to Assyrians around the world. Submission deadline is August 15, 2018 at 11:59pm. There’s no charge to enter. Participants must be 18 years of age or older. Learn more about the competition and how to enter.

The AUAF sponsors this competition to recognize and encourage artistic talent in the Assyrian community.
