Artworks that match ING’s international, contemporary, and innovative character and reflect – by content or technique - a sense of discovery and exploration.
We’re looking for works and perspectives that reflect the world around us, our times and society in a progressive light, and not an interpretation of the ING brand.
Technology, discovery, human centricity, shared responsibility – for each other and the world – they are relevant themes for ING.
The call is open to both emerging and established professional artists based in Romania, invited to submit their existing works. All media & techniques are welcome and experimental approaches are encouraged. Artists can apply themselves or through the representing galleries.
Visual studies graduates
Artists of the works submitted must be aesthetic/visual studies graduates (arts, photography, architecture, film etc.)
Commitment to art
Artists can present a solid body of work that shows commitment to the artistic practice

Given the actual display space, the pieces submitted should fit the wall surfaces available:
Small surface: 2,5m length x 2.75m height
Medium surface: 2,5-4m length x 2.75m height
Large surface: 4-6m length x 2.75 m height
3D works or digital works have no specific size limitation. However, bear in mind the display venue remains an office space with limited room for floor exhibitions.
An interdisciplinary jury formed of art curators, guest artists and ING representatives will assess proposals independently and make a final selection.Please bear in mind that the jury consists of members of different nationalities, therefore, the application pack you submit should be written in English.
1. Results & selection outcome
ING cannot discuss or debate the outcome of the call for its private collection. The results published are considered final and are not subject to dispute

It is the artist’s full responsibility to deliver the work and ensure its integrity up until its reception at the ING Tech office, located in Bucharest. Transportation cost must be included in the final price mentioned in the submission.
3. Price and payment
The price mentioned in the submission is the final price to be paid by ING; artists have sole responsibility for agreements with third parties (galleries, art academies) and costs incurred (fees, transportation, materials, framing etc.) A limited acquisition budget is available, therefore the number of works acquired will be linked to the overall budget.
