Details of Fiji Airways Art Competition Announced

Competition Offers Richest Prize for Individual Secondary Students in Fiji

Fiji Airways and Film Fiji have announced details of the 2015 Kula Art Competition, which will be held as part of the 10th Annual Kula Awards. Students participating in the art competition stand to win $1,000 cash for themselves and $1,500 for their schools. The runner-up will receive $500 cash, while the winner of the Most Popular Artwork (voted by fans), will also receive $500. The cash prizes in the Fiji Airways Kula Art Competition are among the highest on offer to individual secondary students among any competitive event in Fiji.

The theme for this year’s competition is “Welcome To Our Home”, the new Fiji Airways brand campaign. Welcome To Our Home captures the unique Fijian experience travelers have on-board Fiji Airways and in Fiji generally, where visitors are treated as part of the extended family, not just tourists.  

The Fiji Airways Art Competition will encourage students to reflect on the idea of home to them; what it means to be a visitor, and a host, and how this manifests itself in their lives, communities, experiences and their country. The idea here is for students to artistically express what Welcome to Our Home means to them.

Over 100 submissions were received from various high schools in Fiji for last year’s inaugural competition with the winning painting awarded to Sanjay Balsara from Xavier College in Ba for his acrylic on canvas painting.

Film Fiji has noted increased interest and participation for this year’s contest. Registration for the competition is still open

Following the same format as last year, 20 pieces from 20 students will be shortlisted from all entries for the one-day workshop facilitated by renowned local artist Craig Marlow. The students will then be given all required materials to submit a final piece of artwork for judging by a panel of experts.

All submissions will be judged based on originality, creativity, theme and execution. The winner will be announced on the final night of the 2015 Kula Awards. The Most Popular Artwork contest will be run from the final submitted pieces  through the Fiji Airways Facebook page. The most ‘liked’ artwork creator will receive $500 cash for themselves.
