London 2012 challenges student artists to produce Press Centre artwork
25 November 2011
London 2012 is challenging students at colleges and universities to compete in a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to showcase their artwork to the world’s media during the Olympic and Paralympic Games and you have until 5pm on Thursday 12th January to enter.
The competition will see four winning students each being tasked with creating four large scale (2x2 metre) original paintings (16 in total) to be hung in the Main Press Centre (MPC) on the Olympic Park.
The MPC will be home to up to 5,800 of the world’s press and accessed by up to 20,000 accredited broadcasters from approximately 200 nations throughout the course of the 2012 Games.
These pieces of art will provide some of the very first impressions of the Olympic Park and of the Games themselves to the world’s media and as such we are looking for imaginative proposals that will showcase the best of the UK’s young creative talent.
The four competition categories are:
(4) Spirit in Motion
Students or their colleges and universities (on the students’ behalf) are asked to submit a concept document (no greater than six A4 pages in length, with font no smaller than 11pt) outlining their artistic vision for four unique large scale paintings.
All entries should be titled 'MPC Artwork Competition Submission' and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5pm on 12th January 2012.
Full details on the competition can be downloaded from here.
This competition to create artwork for the London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (LOCOG) is run in partnership with Podium and the Creative Campus Initiative.
