August 2014: Landscapes Theme



"Now I really feel the landscape, I can be bold and include every tone of blue and pink: it's enchanting, it's delicious." - Claude Monet


Our Second Annual Art Competition and Exhibition theme is “Landscapes”. A call to artists is announced for the artist’s interpretation of the “Landscapes” theme. Submissions should depict the natural world, outdoor scenery, geographical environments’ and related landscape subjects for inclusion into this Art Competition and Exhibition.

Landscape comprises the visible features of an area of land, including the physical elements of landforms such as (ice-capped) mountains, hills, water bodies such as rivers, lakes, ponds and the sea, living elements of land cover including indigenous vegetation, human elements including different forms of land use, buildings and structures, and transitory elements such as lighting and weather conditions.
Combining both their physical origins and the cultural overlay of human presence, often created over millennia, landscapes reflect the living synthesis of people and place vital to local and national identity. Landscapes, their character and quality, help define the self-image of a region, its sense of place that differentiates it from other regions. It is the dynamic backdrop to people’s lives.
