The VIA Arts Prize is the UK’s only Ibero-American-themed arts prize. Artists of any nationality residing in the UK are invited to submit an original artwork specifically inspired by Ibero-American arts and culture. As a response to the challenges presented by the Covid-19 outbreak, the 2020 edition of the VIA Arts Prize will take on a special format.
The 30 shortlisted works will be exhibited online at the VIA Arts Prize official website from November 2020. Three cash prizes of £2,000, generously provided by Itaú, will be awarded to the jury committee’s first, second and third choices. A cash prize of £1,000 will also be granted to the winner of the ‘People’s Choice Award’. The four winners will also be awarded a joint exhibition in the Embassy of Brazil’s Sala Brasil in 2021.
Deadline 27 September 2020
