Artists can enter a maximum of two works at several national collection points. The submission dates are 15 and 16 July 2014, between 10h00 and 16h00 on both days. Regional judges will select approximately 100 works nationally that will be exhibited at the official opening of the Sasol New Signatures exhibition and prize-giving ceremony.
“Art is the ultimate form of creative skill and imagination. We welcome all forms of works including traditional pieces such as paintings, audio visual works, and performance art to name a few,” shared Peter Binsbergen, Chairman of the Sasol New Signatures art competition judging panel.
The winner will receive R100 000 and a solo exhibition at the Pretoria Arts Museum in 2015. The runner up will receive R25 000 and the five merit winners will each be awarded R10 000.
The competition is open to artists who are 18 years and older who have not held a solo exhibition (a body of at least 20 works exhibited in a commercial gallery), except for academic purposes.
