Digital Competition Qatar + USA

To celebrate the Qatar-USA Year of Culture, we are calling on artists to create digital artworks that brings the two cultures together. 

We invite you to create a digital work of art that expresses and is inspired by twentieth-century American Pop Art and Pop artists, and their vibrant and playful take on mainstream culture, while also using Qatari society and culture as a muse. Artists must merge these concepts, creating a cultural exchange between American art and Qatari culture.  

We encourage participants to be innovative, flexing their artistic talents while also creating works that are fun, colourful and exciting.
