New deadline for competition

The deadlines for the Sasol New Signatures Art Competition are Tuesday June 18 and Wednesday June 19.

Held annually, in partnership with the Association of Arts Pretoria, the competition is open to all South African artists who are 18 years and older and have not yet held a solo exhibition.

Artists can submit their artworks in all mediums, from painting, drawing and printmaking to sculpture, photography, visual art, video and installations.

The aim of the competition is to shine the spotlight on South African artistic talent and create opportunities to showcase undiscovered artists.

Contemporary, innovative and emerging visual artists can submit their work at the AVA (Association for Visual Arts Gallery), 35 Church Street, Cape Town, from 10am to 4pm.

The winner of the competition will be announced on August 21 at a gala event, after which the winning works will be displayed at the Pretoria Art Museum from Thursday August 22 to Sunday September 29.

The winner will receive R100 000 and a solo exhibition at next year’s exhibition, with the runner up winning R25000 and the five merit award winners re-
ceiving R10 000 each.
