SAITAMA, Japan, Mar. 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Art Olympia is a new international open art competition held once in every two years. The main goals are to discover young talented artists and to support them so that their global art careers may flourish. Art Olympia will give away a total of approximately $500,000 in cash awards and prizes to 180 selected artists from all around the world.
The second Art Olympia will accept two-dimensional artworks only. This time, photographic works will be also accepted.
Artworks, submitted from all around the world, will first be reviewed at regional entry bases and then finally will be reviewed in Tokyo. Primary reviews will be done by using the images of artworks and the final review with real artworks. Moreover, the final review will use a point rating system, allowing the public to check the reviewing process to ensure fairness and transparency.
With an eye to supporting young artists, Art Olympia has created Student Category, allowing students to apply for both All-Entrants and Student Categories. A panel of jurors, comprised of experts from various fields of the international art world, provides aspiring artists with a rare chance to get their artworks reviewed by art experts other than their fellow countrymen and women.
