Barclays L’Atelier Art Competition
Barclays L’Atelier is one of Africa’s most prestigious art competitions. It rewards young visual artists aged 21 to 35 with the opportunity to develop their talents abroad. A look through the list of previous winners will testify to this.
Building on the platform created in 2015, the competition is continuing to expand across Africa, opening in a number of countries, where Barclays has a presence. Artists who are permanent residents of and residing in South Africa, Botswana, Zambia, Ghana, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Egypt, Mauritius or Seychelles are invited to enter.
The Barclays L’Atelier art competition is run in conjunction with our partner, the South African National Association for the Visual Arts (SANAVA) visit their website for more information.
There are five prizes for the 2016 competition; the first prize, three merit award prizes and the Gerard Sekoto Award for the most promising artist.
The top 10 finalists will all be placed on a two-day art professionalism course to assist them in managing their careers. Each finalist will also be paired with a mentor who will work with them for a year.
