VIA Arts Prize 2019 Call For Entries

Website: https://www.viaartsprize.org/

The Embassy of Brazil to the UK, in partnership with ACALASP (the Association of Cultural Attachés of Latin America, Spain and Portugal), People’s Palace Projects (Queen Mary University of London), Itaú and Instituto Cervantes is currently inviting entries for the fifth edition of the VIA Arts Prize. The VIA Art’s Prize’s mission is to deepen cultural awareness of Latin American, Spanish and Portuguese arts and cultures in the UK. Submission is free and UK-based artists of any nationality are invited to submit an original artwork specifically inspired by Ibero-American arts and culture. The Prize culminates in a group exhibition of 30 shortlisted works in the Embassy of Brazil’s impressive Sala Brasil gallery, in London. Cash prizes, provided by Itaú, are awarded to the Jury’s first (£5,000) and second (£2,000) choices. The VIA Arts Prize winner is also awarded a solo show at the Embassy of Brazil, running concurrently to the shortlisted artists’ show in the subsequent year.
