Art Competition da MEDici

The Medical Students’ Association (Spolek mediků), the Brno branch of IFMSA CZ and MIMSA together with the Faculty of Medicine of MU announce an ART COMPETITION da MEDici for all students, alumni and employess of the Faculty of Medicine, Masaryk University. Thirteen winning artworks will be featured in the wall calendar of the Faculty for the year 2022 or used for further promotion of the Faculty.

We connect the talent and efforts of its students and graduates, Czech and International, from all study programmes. In these challenging times, we want to divert attention from everyday stress, worries and studying, at least a little. We include in the competition our employees too!

Therefore, we would like to invite all our students, graduates and employees to participate in the da MEDici Art Competition, which is organised by the Medical Students’ Association, IFMSA CZ Brno and MIMSA in close cooperation with the Faculty.

The artwork submissions will make one of the corridors on campus more attractive and will delight the eyes of passers-by, starting from June. And since it is a competition, we will also launch voting, so the 13 best works can be chosen. These will then be featured in the wall calendar of the FM MU for the year 2022. The work with the highest number of votes will be featured on the title page. 

During the Advent time, selected works will also serve as auction items. We will divide all the funds obtained in this way into selected charitable events, whether for the construction of the Memorial for Body Donors or a specific charitable cause selected later. The reward for the chosen artists will also be the knowledge that their works may become a model for the newly emerging promotional materials of the Faculty, such as a limited collection of T-shirts and other items. 

So how can you get involved as an artist? 

Portray any topic related to your field of study at the Faculty of Medicine, including experiences from internships, on canvas or paper. There are no limits to imagination and creativity. Please submit a short annotation with the work, containing for example: what you have created and why, who you are, what areas you want to focus on in the future, or you already focus on. You can also send us your favourite quote, feelings during the creation of the work, simply anything that gives us a better idea of your work. 

We look forward to seeing you and your works!
