With £7000 in prize money available, there’s less than a month remaining to enter.
UK-based artists have until 30 September to enter the VIA Arts Prize. Entrants are invited to submit an original artwork specifically inspired by Ibero-American (Latin American, Spanish and Portuguese) arts and culture, although of course artists of any nationality can enter.
The first-place winner of the competition will receive £5000 in cash and have their work displayed in a solo show at the Embassy of Brazil, while the second place winner will scoop £2000, and the final 30 shortlisted works will feature in a group show at the embassy.
