VULEKA PRIZE MONEY DOUBLED (article first published : 2008-05-4)

Calling all artists! With the prize money doubled and the opportunity to fly to Paris in the offing for the overall winner, it will be worth the while to enter new work for the 2008 Vuleka Art Competition.

Vuleka is the Xhosa word for ‘open’ and that means this prestigious national art competition is open to any artist (18 years and older) who has not had a solo exhibition in the past three years.

However, only original works of art completed during 2007/2008 may be entered.

Vuleka is hosted annually by The Arts Association of Bellville (art.b) in conjunction with the financial services group Sanlam. It is aimed at encouraging creativity, innovation and adventurous art from all cultures. Selected artists from the competition will also participate in an exhibition in Bellville’s art.b Gallery from September 3 to 24 2008.

Artists may enter unlimited artworks in any of three categories, even all of them: Paintings in oil, water colour or acrylic; Three-dimensional works; ceramics included, and Works in any other medium, including photography.

Apart from a winner in each of these categories, the best artwork overall will be selected. For the overall winner a cheque of R10,000 and a free return flight ticket to Paris are waiting. The visit to Paris offers the winner the opportunity to gain new inspiration in the arts and broaden his/her horizons.

Prize money of R5,000 is at stake for each category winner. The artists may offer their works for sale.

Closing date for entries is August 22 at 15h00. For entry forms/particulars interested parties are invited to contact Maxie Oosthuizen at 021 918 2301 or maxie.oosthuizen@capetown.gov.za or at art.b Gallery.
