DRAWING AND PHOTOGRAPHY INTERNATIONAL CONTEST (DPIC)
Architecture Art and Media (AAI) - Utopia 500
Deadline for submissions: 31.07.2016
DPic: Architecture, Art and Image – Utopia500 is an international Drawing and Photography contest based on the concept of “Utopia” and is aimed at undergraduate students and young researchers enrolled at any institution of higher education or research in the world.
Participants will be able to compete as individuals although we encourage the formation of multidisciplinary teams, composed of members with wide-ranging academic profiles. It is, however, mandatory for one participant to be a student of Architecture, the Fine Arts or Image, and be enrolled either in higher education or a research centre. No member should be older than 35 years of age.
The contest involves submitting two A3-size designs, the first showing a part of the city as it is now, and the second a utopian vision of how this same area could be in the future. Although these must be submitted in design or photograph format, there is no limitation on the blending of the two or on the use of photo manipulation and montage.
The contest is organised by UTOPIA500 in partnership with scopio Editions, Project AAI and the research group CCRE (FAUP), and is being promoted by CETAPS and the Cultural Association Cityscopio. Institutional support is provided by the University of Porto's Faculty of Arts and Humanities and Faculty of Architecture, as well as by the Art School of Porto (Escola Superior Artística do Porto) and the UNESCO Literary Town of Óbidos.
DPic / AAI / UTOPIA500 meets the requirements as laid out by the projects AAI and CCRE.
