Applications for the 6th Steel and Life Sculpture Competition organized by Erdemir in cooperation with the Mimar Sinan University of Fine Arts started on May 7. Applications for the competition, which students are looking forward to, will continue until May 28, 2021.
This year Erdemir holds the 6th Steel and Life Sculpture Competition, organized to draw attention to the indispensable place of steel in human life through art and to contribute to the art education of young people. Steel, which Erdemir gives life for more than half a century, will be transformed into works of art by being reshaped in the hands of young talents.
The Steel and Life Sculpture Competition will be held annually due to the high interest of students.
Nearly 500 students have participated in the competition, which was awaited impatiently by students from the Department of Sculpture at the Faculty of Fine Arts. The Steel and Life Sculpture Competition, organized by Erdemir every two years in cooperation with the Mimar Sinan University of Fine Arts, will be held annually starting this year, as a result of the high interest and request of students. In addition to this, the competition will be held in two stages this year due to the pandemic. In the first stage, participants will be able to apply for the competition until May 28 with photos of the sculpture they produce as a model or in a digital environment in PDF format. Participants qualified to take the second stage after a jury evaluation will be able to produce their projects with the material support of Erdemir. At the end of the second stage, they will send their works to the address stated and complete their applications.
Sculptures made by young talents from steel will be presented to art lovers at exhibitions held at the end of the competition this year, as in every year.
Sculpture students continuing their undergraduate and postgraduate studies at the Faculties of Fine Arts at universities in Turkey will be able to participate in the competition. The winner of the 6th Erdemir Steel and Life Sculpture Competition will receive 15,000 Turkish lira, the second 10,000 Turkish lira, and the third 7,500 Turkish lira prize.
