Call for Submissions | LAND ART COMPETITION 2017

Previous Opportunity



Deadline: 15 February 2017


Nka Foundation invites submissions from creative practitioners and organizations dedicated to community placemaking to participate in its 2017 Land Art Competition. The competition is open to landscape architects, artists, curators, designers, architects, urban planners, structural engineers, university students and others from around the world to submit ideas for large-scale and site-specific public art installations based on site in rural Ghana. The submitted entries can be functional or nonfunctional works but must aim at creating a truly unique experience that becomes emblematic of what an arts village is and how it needs to function as a PLACE. Forty of the submitted proposals will be selected for creation on site and to be exhibited as site-specific public art installations that will altogether become a part of the Abetenim Arts Village in Ghana. The arts village is designed as a learning center to provide relational spaces for creative people from the region and other countries to live, work, learn and create.   

Submissions must be received by the competition organizers no later than February 15, 2017. The construction site will be Abetenim Arts Village, near Kumasi in the Ashanti Region of Ghana. Total costs of constructing the design entry must not exceed $3,000 (USD) for materials and local labor. The entry fee is $40 for individual entry and $50 for team entry. Jurors will award prizes for 1st: $1,000; 2nd: $700; and 3rd: $400. Honourable Mentions Certificates will be awarded by the jury to 7 of the Top 40 Entries.

Here is where to register: www.eventbrite.com/e/27345887285 and submit your design entry via the competition discussion board: http://nkaprojects.boards.net/thread/62/2017-land-art-competition
