Entries open for the annual Sasol New Signatures Art Competition 2021

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.

As we march into a new world, visual artists are best equipped to make sense of our dynamic, interconnected, and challenging environments. By promoting art that is ingrained with the spirit of possibility and potentiality, the Sasol New Signatures Art Competition is not just another art competition – it is an enabler for emerging artists to not only expand the possibilities of art, but to also inspire innovation and change.

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.

Activate innovation and change through your creativity by entering the 2021 Sasol New Signatures Art Competition at one of several collection points across the country on Tuesday, 7 September and Wednesday, 8 September 2021 from 10h00 to 16h00.
