About the competition
The competition in contemporary art aims to reveal the talents of prospective HSE Art and Design School students who create works in different formats and genres.
The competition will bring together promising young artists on one platform to determine the best projects in various fields of contemporary art. The winners will receive discounts of up to 100% for studying on the HSE Bachelor's Programme in Contemporary Art, while prospective students of the track in design and contemporary art will get an opportunity to exhibit their works offline.
The competition is divided into two formats; the participant can choose either one of them or both.
