Novo Banco Revelation

The new NOVO BANCO Revelação is a joint initiative of the bank and the Serralves Foundation with the objective of promoting, launching and supporting art production and creation by young Portuguese artists that use photography as their medium.

The competition is open to artists under 30 who submit works/projects never before exhibited or subject to assessment by a jury. The competition is mainly, but not exclusively, addressed to works in photographic support. The subject/theme of the projects submitted is totally free.

From this year, the prize will have a new format, recognising a winner each year and increasing the production grant to 15,000 euros. The new format of NOVO BANCO Revelação will have an international jury who, in the first stage, will select four projects from among the applications received. In the second stage, the jury will select one of the four shortlisted projects as the winner of the competition.

The winner, whose name will be announced in September, will receive a production grant worth 15,000 euros and will have the unique opportunity to show the work in a solo exhibition at the Serralves Museum, opening in November. 

By cooperating with the Serralves Museum in an initiative to encourage the emergence of young photographers, NOVO BANCO is extending its cultural sponsorship strategy in the area of photography and at the same time engaging with the community through innovative ways of promoting art photography involving young Portuguese contemporary artists.

Andreia Santana (b. Lisbon 1991) is the winner of the NOVO BANCO REVELAÇÃO PRIZE 2016. The young artist exhibits her project "History of the Fault" at the Serralves Museum, in an exhibition on display until February 12, 2017.
