    Takeda Pharmaceutical Company together with the Moscow State Stroganov Academy of Design, Applied Arts and the EKATERINA Cultural Foundation announced the launch of an International Art Competition for students of Art Schools and Universities.

    The competition is held for the third time and it is part of the large-scale social-cultural project “Takeda. Pain and Will” aimed at supporting the development of palliative care and new technologies in medicine.

    The theme of the Takeda. ART/HELP. Breakthrough competition reflects the fast-paced development of modern technologies in all areas of human life as well as in medicine. However, as technology progresses it is important to remember such eternal human values as mutual support, human warmth and regard for each other, and caring for the ill.

    The works submitted have to represent the artist’s interpretation of that theme using any style from figurative painting to abstraction. Artists can use various styles and techniques: painted canvases, drawings, watercolours or gouache on paper, and also graphic prints. The size of the work should not exceed 1 meter on the longest side.

    There is no entry fee.

    Eligibility


    Open worldwide to students of Art Schools and Universities.

    Prize


    The six winning artists of the Takeda. ART/HELP. Breakthrough competition will receive monetary prizes from the organisers as well as a special prize from the Takeda Pharmaceutical Company. Seven contestants will travel to Moscow to attend the opening of the exhibition of the finalists. The award ceremony will be held in Moscow at the EKATERINA Cultural Foundation in December 2018.

    A separate section of the exhibition will present the works of well-known contemporary artists. These works will be devoted especially to the project’s theme.
