Be Inspired, Take on a New Skin: Curious Collection 2nd Skin Mask Contest

There's just one month to go to enter the ‘2ND SKIN’ mask contest from Curious Collection. Inspired by the four intense new colours in the SKIN range and the mask commissions of three visionary artists, the entries already online are a glorious riot of colour and creativity:

Entries come from as far afield as Mexico, the USA, China and Brazil, with students giving the professionals a run for their money in this exciting contest. When the competition closes on 28 February, it will be a difficult task for our international panel of judges – influential contemporary artists, designers, creative paper professionals and editors – to select the prize-winners.

Whether you enter for the personal satisfaction of stretching yourself creatively, the lure of a valuable art prize or global peer recognition, this contest puts you in the company of some awe-inspiring artists and creatives.

The three professional artworks that have set the pace – by French contemporary artist Kriki, studio Bonsoir Paris and Japanese paper artist Kako Ueda – will be given as the top prizes and have certainly set a high benchmark that competitors are determined to exceed.

With everyone a winner, there is still time to sign up and enter at Along with the priceless original artworks there are Lomo cameras and Creative Review subscriptions to be won.
