We are sponsoring the Sovereign Art Foundation Students Prize Gibraltar

We are delighted to be sponsoring the Sovereign Art Foundation Students Prize in Gibraltar this year – an award that celebrates the talent and quality of artworks of 11-18-year-old students in Gibraltar, whilst highlighting the importance of art in the education system and rewarding the institutions that nurture this talent.

The Sovereign Art Foundation (SAF) is a charitable organisation founded in 2003 to recognise, support and promote contemporary art talent; and to bring the therapeutic benefits of art to disadvantaged children. SAF runs ten Student Prizes around the world and Gibraltar is the latest addition to the portfolio.

The overall winner of this prize will be determined by the judging panel comprising Gibraltarian contemporary artist, Christian Hook; Gallerist and Curator Magda Bellotti, Arts & Heritage professor Gabriela Giménez, and Howard Bilton, Founder and Chairman of SAF.

Students can submit their artworks to the competition’s online platform, by 22 October. The twenty shortlisted artworks will be displayed in Gibraltar in the Finalists’ Exhibition at the Fine Arts Gallery, Casemates: 6-11 December and John Mackintosh Hall: 13-17 December. The exhibition will then tour in Gibraltar, venues include St Bernard’s Hospital. More information can be found here.

SAF funding this year will go to the Youth Service’s Gibraltar Youth Production Team (GYPT), a cultural art project developing photography, filming and editing skills, through hands-on experience. Additionally, SAF will use funds raised to support The Artful Remedy, an art therapist who will use the resource to offer creative and personal development workshops for children who most need them. It will supply them with a space and all the art materials to teach and develop creative life skills.
