Deadline: 31 December 2018. We are excited to announce that the 2018 contest is now open. We are calling all artists to submit their works.
Passion to Perform is an initiative of Yamana Gold, a leading gold producer with operations and properties throughout the Americas that integrates a commitment to sustainability and stakeholder engagement best practices in all its business activities. This commitment complements a performance based culture driven by an entrepreneurial passion that is mirrored in the passion and commitment demonstrated by many emerging artists.
Pieces of art that become part of the permanent Passion To Perform collection may be displayed in Yamana Gold’s offices, thereby visually communicating a sense of performance to employees and visitors alike.
For this year’s contest, artists were welcome to submit paintings, drawings, mixed media, sculptures and photography as entries to Passion to Perform. The following prizes were awarded in $USD based on a jury selection:
$6,000 for first place
$2,500 for second place
$1,500 for third place
In addition, a fund has been established to acquire additional artworks from the shortlist of finalists, which will then become part of the permanent collection.
