LG Electronics has joined forces with the top nine art and design schools in the U.S. to launch a competition for students to compete in new media artwork. The canvas of the art? LG’s Ultra HD 4K TVs and OLED TVs.
The Art of The Pixel competition will be giving out hundreds of thousands in awards both for students as well as in form of grants for participating schools, not to mention LG TVs that can be used in the schools’ galleries and studios.
The competition launched on June 1, 2014 and both still and motion artwork will be accepted through July 13. There will be prizes for winners of all schools individually as well as additional prizes for the top winner and runner up.
Among the nine schools from which students are eligible to participate are Pratt and Parsons. You can find the full list of schools as well as the entry form at www.lgusa.com/LGSupportsTheArts.
“LG is about creating technology that inspires and empowers people,” said William Cho, President, LG Electronics USA. “We are proud to support the arts through our relationships with these prestigious institutions and to contribute our unique displays as the new medium to inspire and empower tomorrow’s artists.”
