To celebrate the Qatar-USA Year of Culture, we are calling on artists to create digital artwork that brings the two cultures together. 

We invite you to create a digital work of art that expresses and is inspired by 20th century American Pop-Art and Pop artists, and their vibrant and diverse mainstream culture, while also using Qatari society and culture as a muse. Artists must merge these concepts, creating a cultural exchange between American art and Qatari culture.  

We encourage participants to be innovative, flexing their artistic talents while also being creative, fun, vibrant, and exciting.
