What is HEAD ART?
This terminology has not yet been well known, but this is one of the genres of artistic expression now winning the attention of the world.
In a nutshell, HEAD ART is "How to adorn a human head with an innovative design." And, a "HEAD ART" photo contest is held in Akashi City.
This contest is calling for entries from not only Japan but also overseas countries.
The town of Akashi is keen and eager to promote art.
The rules and eligibility for participating in the contest are:
●The contest is open to any nationality.
●The occupation of the participants is not questioned.
●A profile shot of a model should be submitted (Touching up of a photo with a PC or other means is allowed).
"Artist" of any genre from all over the world, including but not limited to hairdressers, nail artists, photographers, calligraphers, flower arrangement artists, chefs, sculptors, painters, web designers, accessory designers, and architects, have a chance to win the glory.
The theme of this year's contest, which sets no barrier between countries, races, or occupations, is "COSMO".
We expect both hair makeup artists and other professionals who seldom touch human heads to stir up Akashi City by submitting think-outside-the-box type photos.
