Take the challenge …

As part of our 100th year celebrations, we are launching the Union Bank Centenary Art Challenge. We have partnered with the Guild of Professional Artists of Nigeria and One Draw, a competitive platform for artists across the country, to engage the Nigerian creative community, particularly undergraduates and professional artists to deliver their unique version of our iconic stallion.

June – September, 2017

Competition Duration

All entries will be screened by selected jury members, after which prizes will be presented to winners.

Submissions Now Closed

The Competition Begins

Candidates are to register and apply between June 1 – June 30 and submit their artwork online before the 31st of July.  

In August, 200 entries will be selected from the pool of electronic entries nationwide. Applicants who emerge successful at this stage will be expected to provide life-size artworks and have them delivered to the nearest submission centres spread across Lagos, Benin, Enugu, Port-Harcourt, Uyo, Kano and Abuja.

Selecting the Top 100

In this stage, the top 100 entries will be jointly selected by members of the jury. All applicants will receive necessary information on the status of their entries via email and/or SMS notifications. All 100 shortlisted finalists will receive an honorarium of ₦50,000 and a certificate of participation from Union Bank.

We’ll notify applicants whose entries do not make it beyond this stage to pick up their art from submission centres.

And the winners are…

In September, we’ll announce the first place winners in the professional and student categories, and also reward two runners-up in the professional category.

*Family members of staff and affiliates of Union Bank and partner agencies are not allowed to participate.
