The iWISE Olympiad is not just another art competition, it is a platform that empowers young emerging artists to challenge the boundaries of their talent in the world of art and to inspire innovation and change. Sculpting is the art of creating objects by shaping materials. This shaping can be carving, where material is removed from an object like marble to reveal form, or modelling, where the artist creates form by adding materials, such as clay. The process of sculpting starts with the artist conceptualising a particular subject. Subsequently, the artist decides the size of the sculpture and material to be used. At iWISE we aim to create a globally recognised platform for upcoming artists to break into the mainstream world of art to launch their careers. Students are invited to submit their masterpieces to our international visual arts contest at the iWISE Olympiad.

Judgment will be based on: relevance of theme, quality of the content, design of poster, creativity of the poster, overall impact, a verbal message of the poster, dimension of the poster, clarity of message, harmony of colours, presentation of participants etc.
