Mekong Artists Company in collaboration with HCMC Museum of Fine Arts on Thursday launched painting competition ‘The Dogma Prize in self-portraiture’, giving a chance for artists to win an award of VND120 million for their self-portraits.

The contest, running from May 7 to August 31, is for all Vietnamese painters aged 18 and above, who are living in Vietnam. The annual contest aims to nourish and develop self-portraitures of local painters.

“Some artists depict others from real life or imagine them in their dreams, but they forget to depict themselves, so this is the chance for artists to discover themselves with their own style, ego and passion,” said Italian painter Richard San Marzano, head of Dogma Collection and member of the judging panel.

Entries must be originals and have been made in the last 12 months. To join the contest, contestants have to register at http://www.dogmaprize.vn .

Apart from the first prize, there will be three awards worth VND15 million each.

The winners will be announced on September 14 when works selected for the final round are displayed at the museum.

The judging panel consists of Ms. Ma Thanh Cao, Director of the HCMC Fine Arts Museum, Ms. Pham Thi Nhu Quynh, manager of Quynh Gallerie, and Marzano.
