Sasol New Signatures 2019

Call for entries 2019

Entries are now officially open for the annual Sasol New Signatures Art Competition.

The competition is open to all South African artists who are 18 years and older who 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.

Informations sessions are held nationally from 17 April. These sessions aim to give artists the opportunity to gain much needed technical information regarding format, size, media and layout of works, as well as give advice regarding the presentation of competition standard work.

The winner will receive R100 000 and a solo exhibition at next year's Sasol New Signatures exhibition, with the runner up receiving R25 000 and five merit award winners walking away with R10 000 each.
