About the Opportunity
We’re searching for South Africa’s best artistic talent. With the advent of Covid-19, there is a greater need for innovators and creators who will shape the world anew and inspire change. Taking on this challenge, the 2021 Sasol New Signatures Art Competition has created a space for eligible emerging artists to imagine, transgress, transcend, disrupt, and innovate through their creativity.
This annual competition is open to all South African artists who are 18+ years and have not yet held a solo exhibition. Artists who have held a solo exhibition for academic purposes, i.e. a Master’s degree exhibition, are allowed to enter. Artists are able to submit artworks in all artistic mediums including photography, performance art, video and installations.
7-8 September 2021
First prize: R100 000 and an opportunity of a solo exhibition at the Pretoria Art Museum
Runner-up: R25 000
