IF you are a visual artist and live in KwaZulu-Natal then you need to get your skates on and enter the fifth Start: The Nivea Art Award competition. Entries close on February 16.

The competition provides the opportunity for one talented artist to win R20 000 cash, a sponsored art studio and art materials for six months, and a solo exhibition at KZNSA Gallery. In addition, the second and third prize winners will take home R10 000 and R5 000 cash respectively.

At an awards ceremony to be held on July 14, the three winners will be announced and the cash prizes presented.

To qualify, artists must be over 18 years of age and should be at the early stage of their art careers, having not yet won any prestigious art awards.

For the first time, the competition is now open to all visual art media except video.

To enter, artists should submit an entry form together with an art portfolio comprising no less than three A5-size photographs of their best existing artworks, as well as a short curriculum vitae of their art career.

Entry forms are available at most KwaZulu-Natal art galleries, by phoning 031 573 2154 or e-mailing nivea.art.award@beiersdorf.com
