On June 1, 2014 the submission phase of LG’s first-ever new media competition for aspiring artists opened up for art students from nine top art schools in the U.S. The Art of The Pixel challenges students to create still and motion digital artwork meant for display on LG’s Ultra HD and OLED TVs.
The requirements for the new media works are as follows:
* Aspect ratio: 16:9
* Still minimum resolution: 3840 x 2160 pixels
* Video minimum resolution: 1920 x 1080 pixels
* File format for still: JPEG * File format for video: MP4
* Maximum length for video: 90 seconds
The prizes for the competitions are pretty nice – the winner from each of the participating schools receives $5000 and a trip to the gala event in New York City where the top winner will receive an additional $5000, and second place winner an additional $3000. Also the winners’ schools will be given a grant of $50 000 and $25 000 respectively.
LG’s Art of the Pixel competition is meant to challenge and inspire the aspiring artists and empower their creativity, like LG is about inspiring and empowering people through technology.
