SCG Foundation wants young and aspiring Thai artists to unleash their creative powers.
This year's "Young Thai Artist Award 2013" is offering prizes worth 3.3 million baht in total, and there is no concept or guidelines to limit entrants' creativity.
Held for the ninth year, this is considered the country's most recognised and largest art competition. It features six categories _ 2D art, 3D art, film, literature, photography and music composition.
This year the competition has no particular concept, allowing all contestants to freely formulate their own thoughts and portray them in the art form of their choice.
The winner in each category will be awarded 150,000 baht, plus an educational tour abroad, while up to four runners-up will receive 50,000 baht.
The submission deadline is Sept 16 for the film and literature categories while entries for the photography, 2D art, music composition and 3D art should be submitted between Sept 12-14, Sept 17-20, Sept 23-27 and Sept 25-27, respectively. Age limits for entrants and where the submissions should be made vary according to the category.
