Registration is now open for the “Colors and Forms of Our Artists” contest, a biennial event, which aims to promote and value local artists or residents in the municipality of Albufeira in various artistic aspects, namely Painting, Drawing and Sculpture.
Registration takes place at the João Bailote Municipal Gallery, between June 15th and 19th, during office hours. The delivery of the work must be made by prior appointment, through the telephone: 289 599 591.
It is also necessary to fill in the form for this purpose, provided by the organization, which must be accompanied by the artistic curriculum and documents proving birth or residence in the municipality of Albufeira.
This year, in the context of a pandemic and the consequent need to implement the measures recommended by the Directorate-General for Health, with a view to the safety of workers and users of cultural equipment in the municipality, the municipality adjusted the regulation, so for the first time since 1997 – 1st edition of “Cores e Forms” – participants can only apply with one work, instead of a minimum of two and a maximum of four works per author in previous editions.
The three best works in the competition will be distinguished with monetary prizes of 750 euros (1st prize), 500 euros (2nd prize) and 250 euros (3rd prize). Honorable mentions may also be given to some works.
This is another opportunity for artists to be able to see their work recognized by a jury made up of specialists from the respective areas in the competition, as well as by the public who will be able to appreciate all the works selected in the exhibition to be held at the Municipal Gallery João Bailote, of 14 August to September 19th.
