As part of the "Open your Lukomorye" campaign, Adobe invites Russian artists to reimagine the legendary Lukomorye from Alexander Pushkin's poem "Ruslan and Lyudmila" with a modern twist. The authors of the most creative artworks will have the chance to exhibit them at the international design and digital art festival OFFF Moscow (September 3-4, 2021).
Competition artworks will be assessed by an international jury of contemporary art and design experts. In the grand finale, the world-renowned conceptual artist Ellen Scheidlin together with the founder of OFFF Moscow Héctor Ayuso, director of Gridchinhall Sergei Gridchin, co-founder Skillbox Sergey Popkov, as well as representatives of Strelka Institute and Adobe will choose five winners.
The winners will get a unique opportunity to exhibit their artworks at the biggest international design and digital art festival OFFF Moscow and attend the Gridchinhall art residence for three weeks. The winners will also receive gifts from Adobe partners, Strelka and Skillbox, and a one-year subscription to Creative Cloud - a collection of tools for design, photo, video, sound, UI, UX, 3D, augmented reality, and social networks.
Participants can send their artworks from July 7th to August 13th. The five winners will be announced at OFFF Moscow festival on September 3, 2021. Adobe invites digital artists, designers, illustrators, and other creators from across Russia to this creative challenge, both professionals and amateurs.
