Sasol New Signatures Art Competition 2011

Our belief in the talent of South Africa's emerging artists finds expression in the Sasol New Signatures Art Competition, presented in collaboration with the Association of Arts Pretoria.

It provides a strong platform to evaluate, appreciate and advance South Africa's emerging talent;
It provides entry into the dynamic world of visual arts;
It inspires emerging artists to show their work in the public; and
It offers artists a valuable learning experience with its outreach information sessions.
We invite all emerging artists to take up the challenge of entering this respected competition in 2011, the 22nd year that Sasol is the sponsor. The competition is held annually and is open to all South African artists who are 18 years and older, who have not held a solo exhibition except for academic purposes.

Artists are invited to submit a maximum of two artworks at one of the nine collection points around the country or via the internet. Physical entries must be submitted on Monday, 11 July 2011 and Tuesday, 12 July 2011 between 10:00 and 16:00. Online entries may be submitted from 16 May 2011 to 19 June 2011 at www.sasolsignatures.co.za.

"Every year, the competition becomes more challenging than ever, as the judges will be looking for artworks that demonstrate outstanding craftsmanship, creativity and innovation," says Peter Binsbergen, chairperson of the 2011 Sasol New Signatures Art competition.

Regional judges will select approximately 100 works which will be exhibited at the Sasol New Signatures exhibition at the Pretoria Art Museum from 31 August 2011 to 2 October 2011.

More details can be obtained from Nandi Hilliard at the Association of Arts Pretoria at 012 346 3100.
