VIA Arts Prize

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) and Itaú, is currently inviting entries for its VIA Arts Prize. Up to 30 selected artworks will go on display for three weeks at the Embassy of Brazil. A jury will judge the final selection. Cash prizes are to be given to the jury’s first (£5,000) and second (£2,000) choices. This year’s theme will be ‘DIALOGUES’. They are inviting visual artists working in the media of painting, drawing, sculpture, photography and print-making, to produce works in dialogue with a work or the oeuvre of Latin American, Spanish and Portuguese art and artists. The Award is open to UK-based artists of any nationality.

Expires: October 16, 2017
