Usak University - Tile competition

06 Jan 2010

Gareth Mason has received details of this competition from Ismail Yardimci in Turkey. 

Gareth suggests that "itrepresents a nice opportunity for ceramics students to get some work in an international event.  It is a tile competition, with selected entries to be included in what looks like a big public art work at Usak University campus in Turkey.  Possibly a good bit of CV development for students, with an application process that is not too taxing." I agree, it sounds interesting. Some details below, but have a look at their website for a bit more, plus the form to apply.
