Theme: The World in 50 Years

The Bahamas just turned 50 and we spent the past year looking back, celebrating and commemorating the achievements of our young nation so far. Now it is time to look ahead!

With the 2023 Central Bank High School Art Competition, we invite you to join us in envisioning a world half a century from now. What does the future hold in terms of technology, environment, culture, and society?

In an age of rapid technological advancement, environmental changes, and evolving global dynamics, we are curious to see your artistic interpretations of what the world might look like in the year 2073. What innovations, challenges, and wonders will define our future? What role will art play in shaping this world? 

We invite all High School students with a passion for art and a curiosity about the future to join us in this exciting competition. Let your imagination soar as you paint, sculpt, photograph, or create with any other medium to envision "The World in 50 Years."

Like always, every Junior and Senior High School student in The Bahamas is invited.

There are no restrictions regarding size or media, except that the work has to be created in the past year. This importance must be explained in a short video clip (max. 90 sec.) accompanying the main submission. This can be done on your smartphone but make sure, the sound quality is good.

The deadline for (your digital) submissions is Thursday November 30, 2023 until 11:59pm.

By then, your submission, must be uploaded as digital files (JPG, MP3, MP4) on this Submittable platform (see further below).

To do all this, non-digital artworks, whether paintings, sculptures, drawings, objects etc. must be photographed from different angles in high resolution (300 dpi). Take your time to make it look as good as possible!
