There is no entry fee for this competition.
Original entries must include a verbal description of the work and its geological content, a diagram or sketch of the work, and specifications of how the work would be suitably mounted and/or framed for exhibition. If the artist wishes to submit a proposal for a 3-D sculpture based on a maquette or prototype, we can only accept photos or diagrams as all entries are electronic. The minimum size for the work is 30 centimetres in any direction, and the maximum size in any direction is 2.4 metres, including frame if necessary. Diptychs and triptychs will be considered a single coherent work. Work should be suitable for indoor display.
NOTE: For all entries, the title, medium used, name, address telephone number and email, at least 2 examples of previous work (photos), and a short biography of the artist must be included in the proposal.
You may submit a maximum of one proposal, illustrating any aspect of field geology or scenic geological landscapes.
It is up to each entrant to ensure that proposals are their own work and that the work proposed must not have been previously exhibited.
Current staff/contract employees of Geological Survey Ireland are not eligible to participate in this competition.
The competition will be judged by a panel including representatives of the IGA, the GSI and external nominees and their decision will be final. The prize will be awarded at the Cunningham Awards ceremony in the Dublin offices of GSI on December 8.
