The competition is aimed at encouraging artists from across the globe to create masterpieces—such as sculptures, rolled up artwork, or anything else— that can fit inside ACG’s pharmaceutical capsules. The winner will receive $5,000.
Peter Neve, CMO at ACG, commented, “At ACG, we firmly believe that science and art belong together—they each require real imagination, vision, and expertise. We, therefore, felt this concept was the perfect way to showcase the synergies between the two. We have launched this exciting competition because we hope to attract entries from promising artists across the globe and to create some exciting masterpieces that will be celebrated for years to come. It’s our chance to display—what we hope—will be some breathtaking work, encapsulating real imagination.”
ACG founders, the Singh Family, have been one of the most formidable corporate art collectors in India. As connoisseurs of art, the family has built a collection that now boasts over 400 individual paintings and sculptures and has supported many artists over the past 50 years.
Entry into the competition is free, with the last date for submissions being May 31, 2019. Artwork submitted for the competition can either be new or a piece that has been created in the last five years.
