To capture the world’s artistic responses to COVID-19, Qatar Foundation and Qatar Museums are organizing a digital art contest and online exhibition in the framework of the Paris Peace Forum.

It’s titled ‘The Untold Stories of Resilience’ and will highlight human resilience in times of crisis.

Artists aged 16 and older from around the world are eligible to submit their work in order for it to be considered for exhibition, and applications are also welcomed from galleries and agents representing artists.

To be accepted, submitted works must use digital technology, such as digital paintings, drawings, photography, and collage, pixel art, videography, Virtual Reality, and 2D or 3D visual media or digital imagery. Priority will be given to thoughtful and relevant interpretations of the contest’s theme that are capable of engaging a broad audience, and scans or photographs of original artworks will not be accepted.

Following assessment by an expert jury, the shortlisted artworks will be confirmed on November 1 and will have the opportunity to feature on Qatar Foundation’s and Qatar Museums’ social media channel.

The three winners of the contest will be announced on November 13 during the Paris Peace Forum, receiving an event ticket and accommodation to attend a TED event in Doha in 2022.

The submission period is now open and continues until October 15.
