ACG Group, an India-based pharmaceutical manufacturing solutions company, announced the winners of its first “Art in a Capsule” competition on Sept. 10, 2019. The contest encouraged artists to create miniature pieces of art that could fit inside the company’s signature capsules.
Ajay Kumar Mattewada took home the $5000 grand prize with his miniature Indian military cavalryman, according to a company press release. Rusi Barucha and Arthur Lazaryan earned second and third places, and Jessica Noelle Morse and Silas Gonzalez won $1,000 each for a special Judge’s Discretion category.
Originally launched in April 2019, the competition received over 90 entries from India, the United States, Europe, and Latin America. The artwork was examined by a panel of judges looking for execution, concept, and “wow” factor. The panel consisted of, Nandini Singh, a collector of Indian Art, Vishwanath D. Sable, dean of the Sir JJ School of Art, and Nina Neve, an art connoisseur and “Wildlife artist of the year” coordinator at the David Shepherd Wildlife foundation.
“We are quite happy to see the response to our Art in a Capsule competition from across the world,” said Peter Neve, CMO, ACG, in the press release. “It has garnered attention from promising artists, and we were inspired by how each entrant painstakingly labored over the project, displaying not only talent but also drive and passion.”
