Theme 2012: Olympian
2012 is a year like no other for London. The Bar-Tur Photography Award will be seeking photographic explorations of the thematic ‘Olympian’, which demonstrate the breadth, depth and diversity this may mean to individuals, communities and society.
As the capital plays host to the Olympic and Paralympic Games this year, we begin to question what the twenty-first century boundaries and definitions of success are. With its extensive community of student and graduate artists and designers, the University of the Arts London is in a unique position to challenge the media driven pressure and the creeping global perception of societal accomplishment, and to explore and redefine the creative definitions of community, participation and excellence of achievement.
