Combine24 - A generative art competition by the Finnish National Gallery is now open for entries!

Combine24 - A generative art competition by the Finnish National Gallery : The Finnish National Gallery is hosting an open generative art competition Combine24 and participants are asked to create a new generative artwork that innovatively uses the copyright-free, CC0-licensed collection data of the Finnish National Gallery in its implementation.

Short description

The Finnish National Gallery , the largest art museum in Finland, is hosting an open generative art competition Combine24 as part of the Digital Finnish National Gallery programme.

The aim of the competition is to seek out new generative artworks that incorporate the Finnish National Gallery’s CC0 licensed collection data and blockchain technology.

Participants are asked to create a new generative artwork that innovatively uses the copyright-free, CC0-licensed collection data of the Finnish National Gallery in its implementation as well as blockchain technology. By generative art, the organizers refer to works that use an algorithm governed by artist-defined rules and parameters, and that generates dynamic variations.

Participation is open for both individual artists and artist groups. Artists or artist groups can participate with a maximum of three submissions. From these submitted works, a maximum of one can be selected for the shortlist.

Submitted works must be unpublished, new, and specifically created for the competition.

The competition is judged in two parts. From the initial submissions ten shortlisted works will be selected to compete for the three prizes and to be part of the competition exhibition, held in Helsinki in the autumn of 2024. Only those ten shortlisted works and their creators selected in phase I will participate in the second phase of the competition. The second phase of the competition begins on Friday, 1 August 2024, and ends in late October 2024 after the competition exhibition has ended.

Submission requirements

Works participating in the competition must meet the following conditions:

The work must use the Finnish National Gallery’s copyright-free collection data as part of the implementation of the work.
Submitted artworks must be created using an algorithm governed by artist-defined rules and parameters, generating dynamic variations.
Submissions must include a detailed description of the artworks concept, that also explains how the collection data of the Finnish National Gallery has been used within the work.

If selected for the shortlist, participants must undertake to expand and refine the written material related to the work at the request of the Finnish National Gallery within one month of being notified of the result.

Evaluation Criteria

The evaluation criteria for submitted works are the artistic and technical quality of the work; the innovative use of the Finnish National Gallery’s collection data; and the strength of the works concept in relation to the collection data. In evaluating the work, the suitability of the work in a physical exhibition may also be considered.

Who may enter?

The competition is a general and open international generative art competition for all natural persons or working groups consisting of natural persons.

Prize

From the initial submissions ten shortlisted works will be selected to compete for the three prizes (First prize 10,000 Euro, Second prize 8,000 Euro and Audience favourite 5,000 Euro) and to be part of the competition exhibition, held in Helsinki in the autumn of 2024.

The winners of the first and second prizes are selected by an international jury of experts. The winner of the Audience Favourite prize is selected through an open vote which will begin after the shortlisted works have been announced (from 1 September to 1 October 2024). The work with the most votes is chosen as the Audience Favourite winner. Competition winners for all three prizes will be announced at an event organised during the competition exhibition in early October 2024.
