ATELIER AWARD DEADLINE (article first published : 2000-02-14)

Entries are invited for what is considered South Africa’s most prestigious art prize, the Absa Atelier Award (formerly Volkskas Atelier Award). Held in conjunction with the South African National Association for the visual arts, the Absa Atelier Award is held annually for artists between the ages of 21 and 35 and there are five prizes with the overall winner receiving R60 000 and four additional merit prizes of R10 000 each.

The award not only ensures South Africa’s emerging artists of recognition but also affords them the opportunity to develop their talents abroad as the prize includes a return air ticket to Paris, France, where the prize money must be used for a time of study of at least three months (not more than six months). Artists will be housed in the studio apartment purchased for this purpose in the Cité Internationale des Arts.

Conditions of entry are contained in brochures which are available at most major galleries or at Durban Arts Association, 316 Avondale Road. Candidates must take cognisance of entry conditions and the entry form must be completed and delivered to the collection point with the works of art and a curriculum vitae by the closing date of March 10. Works will be received at the Durban Art Gallery between March 6 and 10.
