The third edition of Carapelli For Art, an award for visual art promoted by the historic Tuscan company Carapelli, officially begins. From today and until 20th July 2020 it will be possible to submit your artworks and participate to the competition that is giving away a final total prize pool of 12,000 Euro.
The theme of the competition is Roots. “The roots keep us firm on the ground, to make us grow in height; they are our identity, history, tradition – individually and collectively. They make any form of exchange possible because their strength is inclusive. This is in their principle: they give us nourishment and stability, to allow development and transformation. In art, the roots are essential: they can be the relationship with one’s origin, the recurring character of a research, the solid link with a material or an idea, the first and necessary element of a process.”
Each artist can participate in the competition only once, applying only one work.
Entries can be either new pieces or previous artworks, as long as these have not been entered in other competitions. Any technique and materials can be used.
here is no entry fee to participate!
