The Sasol New Signatures Art Competition is open to all emerging artists over the age of 18, who have not yet had a solo exhibition, except for study purposes.
What is an emerging artist?
An emerging artist is generally accepted as someone who is at the beginning of their career, and who has not yet established a solid reputation within the art world. An emerging artist may or may not have any level of academic art training and has a ‘modest’ body of work with few group exhibitions on credit. The term does not imply a specific age limit, rather it refers to the length of the artist’s career and the exposure they have received during this timeframe.
The winner will be expected to produce work for a solo exhibition in the following year. If you are unable to commit to that requirement for any reason, rather postpone your entry to a more suitable year.
