AWARDS

With the aim of promoting and fostering artistic production in the Global South, the 22nd Biennial Sesc_Videobrasil will offer prizes in cash and/or in residency programs to artists or collectives selected by an international jury, comprised of professionals from different fields of contemporary art. The result of the award will be announced during the Biennial’s opening week. The following cash prizes will be awarded, with amounts to be announced closer to the event:

• State of the Art Award: given to the work considered by the jury to be the most thought-provoking, powerful and significant in the Biennial. The prize can be given to a work in any language, produced by an artist or collective of any origin.

• Sesc Contemporary Art Award: given to outstanding works in the 22nd Biennial, produced by Brazilian artists and/or collectives that will be included in the Sesc Art Collection.

• O.F.F. Award: offered by the Ostrovsky Family Fund, it is given to a participating artist, of any nationality, who presents an original investigation of the moving image.

Artistic residency prizes will also be given, which will provide residency periods at partner institutions of the Videobrasil Residency Program, to be announced closer to the event. Prizes include airfare, accommodation and per diem during residencies, which have an eight-week duration and must be carried out between 2024 and 2025.

The Biennial’s organizers, together with other partners, may grant special prizes, to be announced at a later date. Artists or collectives awarded at the 22nd Biennial will receive the Southern Panoramas Trophy, created by a nationally renowned artist.
