ImageThe results are in! The selection committee has chosen 25 winners in the World Bank’s Imagining Our Future Together art contest for young artists.

"With sensitive brush strokes and unusual photo angles, the young artists of Imagining our Future Together offer jointly for the first time a harmonious and joyous regional song of beauty, poetry, irony, and talent," said Marina Galvani, art curator for the World Bank.

The contest received 231 entries from all eight South Asian countries. It was open to artists born after 1974.

The Imagining Our Future Together exhibition will be on display from October through December 2012 throughout the South Asia region and beyond (locations to be confirmed). During the exhibition cycle, the public will be invited to vote online for their favorite works of art. The artist whose artwork receives the most votes will be awarded a special prize.

A series of events in South Asia will take place to bring the selected art pieces and artists together so that they can network with other young people in the region and communicate their views about sharing a common future.
