ACG Group, an India-based worldwide provider of end-to-end manufacturing solutions for the pharmaceutical industry, has launched the first of its kind ‘Art in a Capsule’ competition. Designed to bring science and art together, the competition is aimed at encouraging artists from across the globe to create masterpieces, which can fit inside ACG’s pharmaceutical capsules – either sculptures, rolled up artwork, or anything else. The winner will receive prize money of $5,000.

Peter Neve, Chief Marketing Officer at ACG, comments: “At ACG, we firmly believe that science and art belong together – they each require real imagination, vision and expertise. We therefore felt this concept was the perfect way to showcase the synergies between the two. We have launched this exciting competition, because we hope to attract entries from promising artists across the globe and to create some exciting masterpieces that will be celebrated for years to come. It’s our chance to display - what we hope - will be some breathtaking work, encapsulating real imagination.”
