Conference Artist and Carpet: Today and Tomorrow
Due to the pandemic, ANCM re-imagined the format of the conference and concluded to organize it this fall simultaneously in person in Baku and online with the content delivered via Zoom for those who couldn't make it to Baku.
International Carpet Sketch Contest
The Heydar Aliyev Foundation, the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Azerbaijan, and the Azerbaijan National Carpet Museum announce the international carpet sketch contest dedicated to the 880th birth anniversary of the Azerbaijani poet Nizami Ganjavi. Creative people over the age of 20 are welcome to take part in the contest. Send your carpet sketch scanned at 600 DPI JPEG format to firstname.lastname@example.org until May 15, 2021.
The winner will receive a cash prize. The judging panel will announce the first-place winner on May 30, 2021. Following this, the ANCM's Traditional Technology Department will weave a carpet based on the winner's sketch. If the winner is a foreign citizen, the museum will cover his/her travel and accommodation expenses to attend the carpet's presentation ceremony.
