EARTH DAY 2020 Call for Entries – Earth Day Exhibition: Regeneration On Planet Earth
地球日2020: 展覽作品徵集

In the midst of the pandemic, shoppers swarm stores, stocking supplies for self-preservation. Seemingly comical and absurd scenes make us wonder: what is essential in our lives? Is it face masks for self-protection? Toilet paper for pooping? Beers and cocktails at bars for chilling? Or is it a breath of fresh air, a filled stomach, a healthy body and mind? At this unusual and unprecedented moment, let us reflect and remember, our lives are essentially linked to nature and Planet Earth.

This year, we will #stayathome and celebrate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day and the 2nd anniversary of our Herb Garden. We invite you to submit a creative work for the online exhibition themed “Regeneration On Planet Earth”. Most art forms are welcomed. Selected works will be displayed on our social media platforms. The authors of the 5 most creative works will each be awarded 1 pack of recycled toilet paper!

Specifications:

  • 2-dimensional visual artworks (such as paintings, drawings and photographs): Please upload a photo of your work in high resolution (300 dpi) JPEG format and within 10MB in size. It is not required to submit the actual artwork.
  • Media artworks (such as music, film, animation): The length should be less than 3 minutes. You may upload your video to the hosting websites such as YouTube and Vimeo and provide the video link to us.
  • Writing: Maximum number of words: 300; either in English or Chinese. The file should be sent in MS WORD format.

Submission: Participants can fill in the online form and upload the work.
Submission Deadline: 5 pm, 15/4/2020 (Wed)
All submitted works must be original. Participants may bear the relevant legal liabilities if it involves infringement of copyrights of others.

疫情爆發初期,人人為求自保不惜搶購物資,有人為了一條廁紙不惜持刀行劫,一幕幕看似滑稽荒誕情節上演……究竟生活中甚麼才是最重要?出街有口罩用?去廁所有廁紙用?到酒吧有酒飲?還是呼吸到新鮮空氣?吃到三餐溫飽?擁有健康身心?當下生活習慣、節奏突然改變,讓我們反思一切看似理所當然的生活需要,其實都與大自然息息相關。

今年「地球日」的活動改以網上進行,趁着留家抗疫的日子,我們誠邀大家創作關於「在地球活著・重生」的作品,形式不限;被選中的作品將展示於我們的社交平台。我們將選出最具創意的5個作品,其創作人將可獲贈炙手可熱禮品一份──循環再造廁紙1條!
