Inspired by this spirit of Mt. Jade, E.SUN Bank was established in 1992 with the mission of becoming the best bank in Taiwan. In celebration of E.SUN Bank’s 30th anniversary and to showcase its love for Taiwan, the bank has established the E.SUN Awards to support art creations. This year, in addition to offering NT$1 million to the first prize winner, an international category has been included. The themes of the E.SUN Awards are the ecological landscapes and the historical and cultural characteristics of Yushan National Park. Oil, acrylic, and Eastern gouache paintings will be accepted.
The submission period is from now until August 31, 2022 at 23:59 Taipei time. Participating Categories include General Public, Student, and International. Taiwan nationals may submit entries in the General Public and Student categories. Non-Taiwan nationals, whether based outside of Taiwan or living or studying in Taiwan, may submit entries in the International category.
In the International category, one first prize winner, one to three special prize winners, and one to five merit award winners will be chosen. These winners will receive prize, certificate, and special publication featuring the award-winning works. The total prize for the international category is US$130,000. The winning works in each category will be included in a traveling exhibition around Taiwan and the organizer will cover the shipping costs of works to Taiwan.
