The new PRECIOUS will provide an avant-garde online art platform, where budding artists and art students across the world can share their works regardless of their art forms, whether they be paintings, photography, sculptures, cosmetics, hairstyles, etc. The theme will change every six months and artists can upload photos of their works onto a specific website, where art enthusiasts can enjoy from every corner of the world. All uploaded artworks can also join the Biannual Art Exchange Selections of PRECIOUS for free and will compete for the “Top Ten Awards”, which are selected by jurors consisted of artists and academics from a wide range of countries and fields.
Among the top ten outstanding works, the artwork with the most votes will win the “Best Work Award” and will be on the cover of PRECIOUS. The artist will be interviewed to tell his/her story of becoming an artist and share aesthetic concepts. In addition, PRECIOUS will also introduce the other nine artists winning the “Top Ten Awards”, so that voices of the new generation can be heard and a pluralistic world of art can be sustained.
Any art work with the concept or ideas of "East meets West" can be submitted. Art forms includes but not limited to painting,photography, sculpture, makeup and hair styling;
Old art works can be submitted as long as it matches the current theme.
