Entries for the 2017 Sasol New Signatures Art Competition are now open!
Discovering the wealth of artistic talent that we have in South Africa is at the very heart of the Sasol New Signatures Art Competition. As the longest running art competition in the country, Sasol New Signatures has been a platform for discovering and promoting emerging local artists to the art-loving public.
Contemporary, innovative and emerging artists are invited to enter the 2017 competition. This annual competition is open to all South African artists who are 18 years and older who have not yet held a solo exhibition (a solo exhibition entails a body of work of at least 20 works exhibited in a commercial gallery). Artists who have held a solo exhibition for academic purposes, i.e. a Masters Degree exhibition, are allowed to enter. Artists are able to submit artworks in all artistic mediums including photography, performance art, video and installations.
Information sessions will be held at venues around the country from the end of April followed by Feedback Sessions at the various selection points after the regional judging.
