Premio Combat Prize, art competition was born with the purpose of investigating the most interesting ideas in international contemporary art. The name Combat draws its conceptual inspiration from combat films, videos shot by American military cameramen during World War II battles. Combat films, often shot on the frontline and live, filmed the horrors of the war to document and show to the American people - not yet used to reality TV - what was going on, including the most bloody events.
Premio Combat Prize shares the same objective, which is maybe ambitious but certainly effective from a cultural viewpoint: to go to the frontline to search for different trends in the international art world and to document at the same time the new artistic languages as they develop. It represents a new kind of research model based on a cultural discourse which is free from any commercial constrictions.
There are five categories in which you can participate:
• Graphic Arts
• Sculpture and Installation
After the initial short-listing, artists will be asked to send their original artworks to be included in the collective exhibition.
The registration fee for this art competition is 50 Euro that's approximatly 61 USD for the first artwork entered and 40 Euro for each additional artwork.
This competition is open to any contemporary artist from anywhere in the world. There are neither age restrictions nor thematic constraints.
