In Dubai, they will compete with contestants from across the globe for the coveted title of The Living Masterpiece at a truly intercontinental platform. Moreover, the organisers of Masterpiece 2017 feel that if any deserving artist’s talent dazzles the panel and is from a financially weak background, then the organisers will waive off the fee in special circumstances. Masterpiece 2017 also offers an Intercontinental platform to artists, curated by Living Talent Media group, from all corners of the world, where a global audience can appreciate and recognise their art.
Revolutionizing the way talent is assessed in the industry, judges and viewers will decide jointly which contestant advances to the finals to win the grand prize of US$10,000. What’s more? The winners get a chance to feature in an upcoming Intercontinental Web series by Living Talent Media Group. In addition, Masterpiece 2017 will invite venture capitalists and angel investors who bring, not just seed capital, but also valuable mentorship and office space for the winners of Masterpiece 2017.
