Can you paint brilliant murals? Create engaging installations? Make sculptures that inspire? Bring poetry and digital art into the real world? Show Team Pop your creative potential – and win £300 along with greater consideration for the large-scale paid projects we offer to our artists.
Perhaps you have never had the chance to show us the range of your style or mediums. Maybe you didn’t know whether Pop was the place to share your larger work. Or maybe you know you have the skills and the talent to pull off something amazing but have never tried working at scale. Well, now is your time to shine and produce something spectacular!
>>>The Challenge <<<
At Pop My Mind we are always looking to find artists for certain opportunities. Often our clients want large-scale, impactful creativity brought into the real world. Seeing how you can apply your talents in this way will help us get to know your range of skills, so that we can consider you for similar paid opportunities. Think of this as your chance to show yourself off to us!
We want you to make something new that carries a strong message, conveying a clear narrative. Give thought to your imagined audience: our commercial clients often want more figurative work easily accessible to their public, ideally the work needs to appeal to the viewer with cool and contemporary style. And of course it should show off your extraordinary talent.
We have a Pinterest board for inspiration here: www.pinterest.co.uk/pop8297/scale-it-up
To give you the time to do something great, we are giving you three months to respond to this call-out.
In September our favourite response will be awarded £300 from the invention award pot, but to do whatever they like with. In the meantime I’ll be posting blogs about the standout pieces and offering some inspiration.
You must create something brand new for this call-out - old artworks you’ve made previously won’t count.
We encourage all creative responses in all mediums - including music and video art. Any digital artwork should be presented in situ as installation/projections. We would suggest that for the larger works you should video them to convey the detail and scale.
Be unrestricted in your ambition; show us how far you can go.
Deadline is midnight on Friday 31 August 2018
