This week, RTÉ launched a nationwide art competition: ARTifact. ARTifact asks the public to create artwork based on two themes – ‘RTÉ as part of Irish life’ or ‘RTÉ of the future’. Submissions can be a painting, sculpture, drawing, illustration or photography and the three winning works will be placed at RTÉ’s Donnybrook premises in Dublin. The competition is part of the new RTÉ All Access website, which gives users an inside look at what’s going on throughout RTÉ. To enter, participants must submit a photograph of their completed work to the ARTifact page on www.rte.ie/allaccess by Friday, 18th February. All entries will be judged by a panel of well-known personalities, who will choose the top ten entries. The ten finalists’ work will then be put to public vote on the RTÉ All Access website. The top three entries with the highest votes will be revealed as the winners at an unveiling event in RTÉ in April.
