Calling artists to redesign Emirates membership cards

Earlier this year, Emirates redesigned its Skywards frequent flyer membership cards by featuring works of art from renowned contemporary artists such as Damien Hirst, Christopher Ries and Simone Cenedese.

Now, with the launch of a global art competition, Emirates is furthering their commitment to the art world by giving new and undiscovered talent the unique opportunity to enjoy global exposure and have their artwork adorn their membership cards in 2011.

Emerging artists are invited to respond to any or all of the three briefs: Gold, Silver and Blue. Each brief asks for an interpretation of a different mood or quality.

Winners will receive a commission of USD5,000 and their work will also enjoy global recognition. In addition, you’ll have the chance to fly to Dubai and display your artwork and portfolio at Art Dubai, the leading contemporary art fair in the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia region in March 2011, attended by art critics, collectors and gallery owners from around the world.
