The VIA Arts Prize 2019 Call for Entries is now closed.
Thank you to everyone who applied. Results of the pre-selection will be released on Monday 21st October.
The VIA Arts Prize is the UK’s only Ibero-American themed visual arts competition, inviting artists to submit original works inspired by Latin American, Spanish and Portuguese arts and cultures. It is organised by ACALASP (the Association of Cultural Attachés of Latin America, Spain and Portugal) and supported by People’s Palace Projects and Instituto Cervantes. The Prize is generously sponsored by Itaú.
The Prize culminates in a group exhibition of shortlisted works in the Embassy of Brazil’s impressive Sala Brasil gallery, in the cultural heart of London. A jury of high-profile personalities from the Arts world make the final selection of winning entries. Cash prizes, provided by Itaú, are awarded to the Jury’s first (£5000) and second (£2000) choices. The VIA Arts Prize winner is also awarded a solo show at the Embassy of Brazil in the subsequent year.
