Thai artists have an opportunity to exhibit their works in Taiwan and win a prize during the 2023 "Taoyuan International Art Award", which will open a call for submissions from April 4 to 22.

Organised by the Taoyuan Museum of Fine Arts, this is a top contemporary art competition in Taiwan that will accept only new artwork that has never previously been exhibited or entered in competitions by any artists of any nationality from around the globe.

Artists are free to submit works of any material, category, or field -- be it 2D (painting/mixed media/photography), 3D (sculpture/3D object/installation/pluridisciplinary works), interactive installation, audio/moving image/animation or performance art.

The award contest is held every two years, enabling one year for submissions and exhibition, ensuring that there is adequate time for artists to create and plan for the upcoming exhibition.

Works will be submitted through an open call process with no set categories for selection. Instead, works of various media, types, and disciplines will be competing on the same stage and artists can provide written submission materials in Chinese or English. Entries will be taking part in a two-stage review process. The first stage is an online review. Works that pass this preliminary review will be announced by the end of May.

Then, the organiser will be covering preliminary exhibition set-up cost, return shipping expenses of the work, and round-trip economy class airfare for successful candidates to participate in the exhibition which will take place in March next year.

The second stage will take place at the exhibition venue and winning works will be selected to exhibit at the Taoyuan Arts Center until early May.

The Grand Prize winner will be awarded NT$600,000 (702,000 baht); three honourable mention winners will receive NT$200,000 (234,000 baht) each.
