Created by Artaic Innovative Mosaic and sponsored by Bostik, DNG 2017 invites architects, designers and mosaic design enthusiasts to submit beyond the threshold of imagination designs for a backlit, mosaic mural to be permanently installed at the “Height of Decadence,” Hyde Bellagio nightclub overlooking the Bellagio fountains in Las Vegas. Their challenge will be to come up with a creative, tour de force for the “Selfie Studio”. Entrants will qualify to win various prizes, including the grand prize, an all expenses-paid trip for two to Paris, France.
Last year’s winner, Nicole Kohri says, “My advice to this year’s contestants is to go with what you’d like to see at the venue. DNG has been a wonderful experience, to say the least.”
DNG 2017 is free to enter. Registration is required, and participation is open to applicants from all design backgrounds including professionals, students and design enthusiasts. All submissions must be received not later than March 24, 2017. A panel of industry-specific experts will select the ten finalists and, ultimately, the grand prize winner.

A gallery consisting of DNG finalists will be on display at AIA Convention 2017 in Orlando, April 27-29. This same collection will also be showcased at HD Expo in Las Vegas, May 3-5. Ultimately, the grand prize winner will be unveiled at a VIP event sponsored by Bostik at Hyde Bellagio on May 4th
Dr. Ted Acworth, CEO/founder of Artaic, summed it all up by stating, “The winning mosaic really has to pop and be beautiful in order to fit the level of a space like that of Hyde.”
