“START” NIVEA AWARDS (article first published : 2006-06-17)

In a collaboration that seeks to create a platform for development in the field of visual art in KwaZulu-Natal, the KZNSA Gallery together with their partners Biersdorf proudly present START.

In its second year running, START, the Nivea Art Awards selects 20 finalists from a pool of entries solicited from all over KZN. The 20 finalists are commissioned to produce work that will go on display at the KZNSA Gallery for judging.

The competition awards three prizes annually: first R20,000, second R10,000 and third R5,000. Although the financial injection is important, it is the process that is most beneficial to artists.

The commissioned artists work closely with the judges and are required to submit three progress reports before submitting the final art. The judges are made available to the artists throughout their process of creation so as to give guidelines when required.

This year’s judges are Sfiso KaMkame, Storm Janse van Rensburg, Juliet Armstrong, Anthea Martin, Gabi Nkosi and Nathi Gumede.

This project is funded by Biersdorf under the expert guidance of a Symbiotic Communications.

The completed artworks will be exhibited at the KZNSA Gallery from June 27 to July 16. More information from KZNSA Curator, Nathi Gumede, on 031 2771703 or 082 220 0368.
