Taipei, March 7 (CNA) An art exhibition competition in Changhua County is soliciting submissions in six categories, including oil and watercolor painting, 3D crafts, photography, digital arts, calligraphy and seal engraving, and Chinese ink and gouache painting.
The first prize in each category at the 18th Huangsi Art Exhibition is a trophy and NT$100,000 (US$3,233), while the best of the six first prizes will receive the Huangsi award and an additional NT$300,000, according to Changhua County Cultural Affairs Bureau.
The bureau will accept submissions from Republic of China (Taiwan) citizens from March 24 to April 5.
Since 2000, artists from all walks of life and all ages have taken part in the competition, while the winner in the 3D crafts category last year was an inmate at a local jail, said the bureau.
At a press conference on Monday, bureau director Chen Wen-pin (陳文彬) encouraged artists from across Taiwan to submit their art works, especially those who were born or grew up in Changhua County.
All winning works will be exhibited in Changhua and Miaoli counties from October to December.
