Art Competition - Submission Rules

LOGI invites you to submit an art piece that expresses how you think oil and gas discoveries in Lebanon might impact you.

The oil and gas sector could be vital in shaping the future of our country, good or bad. This is an opportunity to use art to express our hopes and fears, raise  awareness on the topic and help engage other Lebanese on this important issue. 

Please find below all the details to participate in LOGI's Art Competition:

10. Judging process: Winners of the competition will be selected in two steps:

Step 1: Top 50 participants qualify

This phase will involve a pre-screening by LOGI members to ensure only high-quality submissions and no plagiarism. Once a piece of art is admitted in the competition, Facebook users will submit their votes in the form of "likes" on LOGI's Facebook page. Only likes on the art published on LOGI's Facebook page will be considered, and not the likes on the candidates personal Facebook pages.

Step 2: Final winners selected by jury members

A board formed of 5 jury members will pick 6 winners from the Top 50 submissions selected in Step 1. They will use the assessment criteria below.

11. Assessment Criteria: art forms will be assessed based on four criteria:

  • Concept
  • Content
  • Creativity
  • Presentation

12.Prizes: Each category will have three winners: 1st Place, 2nd Place, and 3rd Place winners.

  • Winners of 1st Place receive an amount of 500$
  • Winners of 2nd Place receive an amount of 300$
  • Winners of 3rd Place receive an amount of 200$

13. License:

  • By finalizing the submission, participants grant LOGI the right to publish their art forms for purposes that serve its mission and vision.
  • By finalizing the submission, participants grant LOGI the right to use their contact information for future news feeds and updates about the NGO.
  • LOGI also claims the right to display the art forms in any future public event.

14. Oil and Gas 101: Participants are invited to watch the following 3 minutes video aimed at giving candidates high-level concepts on oil and gas to help them think through the message they want to articulate through their art.
