Each year, BreyerFest hosts a Diorama Contest that attendees are invited to participate in. Participation in the contest is open to (and free for) VIP and All-Access ticket holders and the contest theme ties into the BreyerFest theme in some way. In the last few years, the entrants who have contributed to the Diorama Contest have blown our minds (and the minds of our esteemed judges) with their creativity, ingenuity, and the various ways in which they interpret each year’s theme.
With this year’s BreyerFest focused on color and art we can’t wait to see what diorama entries are submitted for 2021’s Diorama Contest – Horses Throughout Art History.
Participants in this year’s Horses Throughout Art History Diorama Contest are invited to create a diorama, using any scale Breyer model, which recreates a scene of a horse in art. The work you select as the inspiration for your diorama project MUST include at least one horse in it, but the original medium of the piece you draw inspiration from can be any type of art: a clay pot, a painting, a sculpture, a photograph, etc. Your diorama does not need to be an exact interpretation of the original artwork, but when compared side-by-side, it should be clear that your selected work was the inspiration for your diorama.
Entrants must select a work that is Public Domain/Open Access from one of the three provided source sites. You can watch our quick video explaining this here.
Participants must include a direct link to the original art piece they were inspired by for reference with their entry. This year’s contest is open only to All-Access and VIP All-Access ticket holders. All entries must fit into a 12” cube and must include at least one (1) Breyer model horse. Complete rules and information on how to enter can be found here. Please read the rules carefully.
