The public entry competition FACE established in 2013 is offering a gateway to the art world for up and coming artists regardless of their age or affiliation and many entries are received every year. A panel of judges, comprised of art critics, conducts a rigorous review to choose submitted works that have potential to receive global recognition in the future. Outstanding works are awarded prizes, including the Grand Prix Award and Excellent Work Awards.
