Novo Banco Revelation

NOVO BANCO and the Serralves Museum have launched the 2017 edition of the NOVO BANCO Revelation Award, which honours young Portuguese artists in the field of contemporary photography. Every year this initiative honours one main prize winner, and attributes a production scholarship in the amount of €15,000 to complete the selected project, the topic of which may be freely selected.

An international jury, comprised of a different group in every edition of the award, initially selects four projects from among the applications received. The names of the four artists will be disclosed in May and we shall publish a catalogue which, besides photographs, will include interviews with the artists.

In a second stage the jury will select one of these four projects as the grand prize winner. The winner, to be announced in mid-July, will receive a production scholarship and will have the unique opportunity to present his or her work at an individual exhibition at the Serralves Museum, to be inaugurated next November.

The competition is open to projects by artists of Portuguese nationality, or foreigners residing in Portugal, up to 30 years of age (on the closing date for applications, 30 April 2017).
