NEW SIGNATURES CLOSING DATE (article first published : 2008-06-25)

Aspiring young artists wishing to submit online entries for the Sasol New Signatures Competition can register and enter their works until July 3 2008 at 18h00 at www.sasolsignatures.co.za

The online-facility provides artists with a secure and cost-effective platform to present works for the first round of judging. It also extends accessibility to the competition beyond the eight national collection points and physical submission dates.

To enter online, artists are required to register a profile on the website before submitting a work. Although the competition is not judged in categories, online entries must be submitted in one of three categories for administrative purposes:

Category A includes all two dimensional artworks and incorporates drawings, photography and all types of paintings. Category B includes three dimensional artworks such as sculptures and installations. Category C is for all new media. This may involve videos and electronic applications.

All works selected for the exhibition will be transported by Sasol, in partnership with Stuttaford Van Lines, from regional collection points at Bloemfontein, Cape Town, Durban, Polokwane, Port Elizabeth and Stellenbosch to Pretoria.

The online submission facility and a transportation partnership with Stuttaford Van Lines provide an inexpensive and safe option for young cash-strapped artists to take part in the competition.

Open to up-and-coming South African artists, aged 18 years and older, who have not yet held a solo exhibition, the competition carries total prize money of R100,000. The winners will be announced at the opening of the competition exhibition at the Pretoria Art Museum on August 20.

More details and entry forms can be obtained from Nandi Hilliard on 012 346 3100 and at www.artsassociationpta.co.za or www.sasolsignatures.co.za
