The EDP Foundation is calling for applications to another edition of its New Artists Award (Prémio Novos Artistas, in Portuguese) until February 26.

The award is attributed every two years and is aimed at promoting and supporting the emerging talent in Portugal in the fields of visual and plastic arts, the foundation says in its official website, where the detailed regulation can be found.

Portuguese nationals living in Portugal or abroad, as well as foreign artists residing in Portugal, are elected to apply for the award.

The choice of six to nine finalists of the 12th edition of this initiative will be announced in April. Those finalists will be given the chance to take part in a collective exhibition in MAAT to take place between June and September. An international jury will then choose the winner, who will receive a cash prize of 20,000 euros (around 170,000 patacas), the foundation explains.
