VIA Arts Prize 2018

Email Friend Add to Favorites Report Listing

The VIA Arts Prize, held annually at the Embassy of Brazil to the UK, in partnership with ACALASP (the Association of Cultural Attachés of Latin America, Spain and Portugal), People’s Palace Projects from Queen Mary University of London, and sponsored by Itaú, is pleased to now open the call for entries for this year’s prize.

Following on from the success of last year’s edition, the theme this year remains “Dialogues”, a theme that remains topical and that embodies the continuity of this London arts prize while promoting a process of intercultural exchange through an engagement with Ibero-American art and cultures. 

The Prize is open to all UK based artists who submit original visual artworks that are in keeping with the theme and inspired by Ibero-American artistic cultures, including visual arts, literature, music, dance, performance and film.

The top 30 works will be carefully selected by a curatorial committee and will be exhibited at The Embassy of Brazil for seven weeks. Two winning entries will be chosen from this top 30 by a high profile jury. Thanks to sponsor Itaú the winner will receive £5,000 and the runner-up £2,000.  At the end of the seven-week exhibition, a People’s Choice prize will be awarded to the artist whose work has received the greatest number of votes from the visiting public.

Applicants can submit their work by filling out the submission form on the website There are no submission fees. 

The call for entries is open until 4 November 2018 at 23:59
