Art Competition on Hinduism in Trinidad

Radio Jaagriti and the Indo-Caribbean Cultural Council (ICC) are inviting visual artists to submit their work for an art competition on the theme of Hinduism in Trinidad.

The prize for the 1st place is $TT1500, 2nd place is $TT1000, and 3rd place is $TT500.

All contestants will be given certificates of participation. All acceptable works will be displayed in an art exhibition and featured in a Divali magazine in October 2009.

The competition is open to enthusiasts, amateurs, beginners, students and professionals. There is no fee for participation. Children under the age of 18 years must have the written consent of their parent or guardian.

Paintings must be on paper, poster-board or canvas and must have mounts to hang on a wall. They must not be laminated or covered with glass.

Paintings must be done in colour in any medium except crayons, pens, pencils and markers. These two-dimensional pieces must either be in watercolor, acrylic, pastel, paint or oil.

Each entry must be submitted with a 250-300 word description of the painting which must include a two-sentence biography of the artist.  Submissions must not be smaller than a letter-size page.

Entries must be entirely the original work of the artist. Adaptations or reproductions must not be submitted. Each artist must send no more than one entry.

Entries must be delivered to Radio Jaagriti, Corner Pasea Main Road Ext. and Churchill Roosevelt Highway, Tunapuna, Trinidad and Tobago, between the hours of 8.00 a.m. to 4.00 p.m. from November 24th to 28th 2008.

Entries will be judged on the basis of creativity, authenticity, interest and style. Decisions of the panel will be final, and no communication will be entertained about the results.

Every attempt will be made to secure these paintings but Radio Jaagriti and ICC cannot accept any responsibility for lost or damaged entries.

All efforts will be made to return works to their owners after the art exhibition.

Results of the competition will be announced by December 12th 2008.

Entry implies acceptance of all the terms and conditions stated above.
