At the present time, it is becoming increasingly difficult to comply with the requirements of the art market. Artists, in particular, face the challenge of competing with the ever increasing number of newly arising artists in the contemporary art field. The aim of this Contest is to promote the enrolled artists, and to give them the chance to join the international market of contemporary art.
