The International Billboard Art Competition Art Moves 2024

The invitation is addressed to all the interested people, artists, and students. There is no entry fee. The best 6 artworks selected by an international jury panel will be printed and exhibited in the urban space of the city of Torun, Poland in September 2024. The author of the winning entry will receive the Main Award in the amount of PLN 4000 (about EUR 918, USD 981.20). The entries can be sent by electronic mail until 24 July 2024, 0:00 CET, to the following address: artmoves(at)tlen.pl.

The competition is a part of the 17th Festival of Art on Billboards Art Moves. The artwork is supposed to be a creative response to this year’s competition theme: To become dependent or independent? To swim with or against the tide?

This competition slogan can be treated as a metaphor for all the processes taking place in the world today. Every time has its challenges, and it is impossible to escape them. Despite the fact that we, as humanity, have solved a range of different problems faced by our ancestors in many respects, with the development of civilization and technology, they have been replaced with new challenges that we must face.

Since a large part of the global society is not able to cope with their own fears and dark thoughts, how can we cope with these new challenges? Instead of taking the bull by the horns and making a real effort to find creative solutions, we often prefer someone else to resolve the problems. Instead of making decisions for ourselves, we prefer other people to make decisions for us. Instead of acting, we escape; instead of swimming against the tide, we swim with the tide.

How can we break this deadlock, give up pessimism and malaise, and find the courage and energy within us (and our communities) to take action and build a more positive reality? How can we regain self-agency and stop believing that only artificial intelligence, governments, or other people are able to resolve our problems? How can we stop resorting to various kinds of addictions: social media, technologies, or psychoactive substances? How can we regain independent and critical thinking, as well as the will to make decisions about our own life and the shape of reality? How can we stop escaping and face up to reality? How can we avoid being dependent? How can we become independent and self-manageable? How can we create a common better future on our Planet?
