Being artistic doesn’t have to mean you’ll fit into the trope of “the starving artist”. If you have a talent for creating visually-appealing things, you may just be able to snag some lucrative prizes at KINEX mall’s upcoming art competitions. 

Team up with your buddies to design and paint a giant 3D dove, or try your hand at a floral arrangement competition for a chance to display your masterpiece and win U-POPP Gift Cards worth up to $1,000. For those who don’t have artistic talent, no need for FOMO – read on to find out how you can get your hands on the bounty as well!

Design and paint a 3D dove

Submissions for the competition are now open. Titled Paint the Doves, you’ll have to put on your thinking caps to come up with the most creative and unique dove design that’ll stand out from the flock.

How to join

To get started, download the dove template on KINEX’s website and start sketching. You can go solo or team up with up to 4 friends to sketch a design for a 1.2-metre tall 3D dove. Submit the work you’re most proud of by 14th October 2019 for a chance to score a spot as 1 of the 9 finalists.

If selected, you’ll be converting your design onto a huge dove at the live contest from 15th – 17th November 2019. Your finished design will be displayed in the mall, where shoppers will be able to cast votes for your work of art too!

Winning criteria and attractive prizes

The winning dove design will be decided based on 3 criteria: design and originality; workmanship and teamwork; and shoppers’ votes. So make sure your dove has what it takes to capture the attention of voters!

Happening on 17th November 2019, this competition isn’t your run-of-the-mill decorating contest – there’s a 3-hour time limit, so you’ll have to work fast to create a masterpiece that’ll stand out.
