CALL FOR APPLICATIONS FOR PARTICIPATING IN A NATIONAL ARTS COMPETITION

The art competition of the Foundation for National Arts (2010)

The Foundation for National Arts (FNA) calls for applications in five categories in a project entitled
“Turul – I can do better”

The competition welcomes all artists, professional or amateur, who experience their patriotic feelings
by creating works of art.

The aim of the competition is to display a coherent picture of those beliefs of a nation’s artists which reflect their commitment to the Nation’s Body. Moreover, an equally important aim to achieve would be to make national art better-known for a wider public. Therefore, works of art of artists driven by the national ethos will be displayed so that the public would be able to immerse in them and get to know them better.

The competition is eligible for all Hungarian citizens, regardless of their age and gender.

Conditions of participation:

Each applicant should submit one work of any technique (painting, drawing, statue, event, etc.), the maximum size being 1 m³ in the chosen category, in accordance with the principles of the competition.

1: Introduction. (A short introductory letter of the applicant).
