In alignment with our video workshops, the art contest will explore the theme “Symbols of She; a Journey through Feminine Symbolism.” We invite artists to submit works that venture into the depths of feminine symbolism, be it through cultural motifs, natural elements, or abstract forms that resonate with the essence of femininity.
All enteries will be featured in INA DAO’s galleries in Voxels and on NearHub
The objective of the contest is to take the inspiration and exploration started in the video workshops to a wider community of women artists. We aim to spotlight the intricate relationship between symbols and femininity and to celebrate the different ways this can be artistically represented.

Submissions will be evaluated by the council and the two workshop hosts. The artwork will be judged on creativity, interpretation of the theme, technical skill, and emotional resonance.
This art contest aims to encapsulate and magnify the discussions, discoveries, and individual artistic journeys commenced during the workshops. We envision this as an enriching continuation of our mission to understand, engage with, and portray feminine symbolism in art.
By involving women artists in this specialised thematic exploration, we aim to contribute to the broader dialogue around women’s roles, identities, and representations in both art and society at large.
Because of such a low submission of 2 pieces, we have decided to postpone the art contest and gallery show until the new year. The date and time is to be determined, but I will announce it here and also on our Telegram group. Sorry about this, we are trying our best!
