Hotel Football Competition

Do you want your artwork and KnownOrigin profile to be promoted and seen by thousands … and have the chance to win some amazing prizes too.

KnownOrigin have teamed up with Hotel Football, Stanley Chow and SicoCreative to launch a unique opportunity to have your artwork displayed inside and outside of Hotel Football - just outside Old Trafford, here in Manchester, the home of KnownOrigin.

A call for artists from the KnownOrigin platform to enter our competition

Winners work to be digitally displayed within the physical spaces of the Hotel Football, Manchester, UK overlooking the theatre of dreams, Old Trafford, creating excitement, energy and atmosphere throughout the hotel.

Providing a platform for artists to showcase their work to the 1000’s of visitors each week from around the world. Artwork to be displayed on various 4K screens as well as two large external screens on the building.

The brief is simple:

Where will our beautiful game be in the next 5, 10, 50, 100, 1000 years time?

Holograms, robots or cyborgs of Maradona, Messi and Ronaldo?

Will football change into a Quidditch™ style game?

Apocalyptic stadiums on Earth or distant planets?

Players with wearable tech? What’s the future for VAR?

What about the fan experience at a match? VR / AR / Multiscreens within stadia?

We want the art to get all futuristic!

Winners will get chance to have their art and contact details splashed around the many screens around the hotel and infront of literally 1000 ’s of people each week. We will use QR codes, so anyone viewing the screens can link directly to the artists KnownOrigin Profile page.

As well as 3 great prizes for the top three entries.
