New Art Competition

Leonardo da Vinci - Sketch of a HorseHere's a new international digital art competition. The deadline is 20 November 2006, so you have one week to e-mail your masterpiece to the Cultural Association Acquamarina, organizers of The Brain Project (click title link). This year's subject is "Borders". Leonardo Da Vinci's drawing of a horse has been taken as the logo for The Brain Project, which aims to promote and popularize "art in its most innovative aspects". Your medium is up to you - paint, photography, graphic design -, but you must be able to send your work by e-mail in JPG format no larger than 250KB and the size must be 576 x 576 pixels. Square! Yuk! Why square? Why reject the Golden Section? If next year's Brain Project competition doesn't have revised technical specs, the only artists it will attract will be tile designers. As for innovation, animation is the thing. GIFs disallowed? Forget it.
