'Art of Basware' competition embodies 'Growth' with global remit

ESPOO, Finland --(Business Wire)--

The Art of Basware, now in its 15th year, is going global. The annual art competition is sponsored by Basware, the leading provider of e-invoicing and purchase-to-pay solutions, and is encouraging young artists internationally to participate in the competition.

Steve Muddiman, Chief Marketing Officer of Basware commented: "The Art of Basware is close to our hearts, supporting our values and culture as well as our drive for continued innovation. We are extremely proud of what we have achieved with the 'Art of Basware' in helping young artists and highlighting the deep connection between innovation, determination, creativity and commerce. Last year nearly 200 artists with over 400 pieces of art - ranging from traditional and mixed media to sculpture - entered this great initiative, which supports social development."

"As Basware has grown into a truly global organisation we've wanted to grow this competition to give a bigger pool of talent the chance to show us - and the world - their potential. We believe no is the time to extend this competition and encourage others across the world to express their creativity in supporting themes that affect people's everyday lives. This is why we selected the theme of 'Growth' for this year."


Submission is free of charge and all entries must be received by 21 March 2014. Artists under 30 years of age can submit images of up to three entries - in any material or medium - to win a grand prize of €5,000. Following review by a panel of art experts, the winner will be officially announced at an event on 8 April 2014 in Helsinki, Finland. The winning artwork will then become part of Basware's growing art collection. Last year's winner was Viljami Heinonen from Finland, who gained added recognition as an artist and received a lot of interest for his artistic work since winning The Art of Basware.

The winning art work, as well as the shortlisted entries, will be exhibited at the House of Music in Helsinki, which is open to the public from 1-9 April 2014.
