Concurso
 

Established in 2012, Passion to Perform is a competition with a mandate to foster the important contributions art makes to vibrant communities. The objective, since the beginning, has been to support and encourage emerging artists from around the world and develop a world class collection of work representing these artists. Passion to Perform celebrates the interconnection between performance and passion, and aims to award winning entrants with meaningful compensation that can positively impact each artist抯 practice and encourage them to pursue their passion.

 

Artists are welcome to submit paintings, drawings, sculptures and photography as entries to Passion to Perform. The following prizes will be awarded in $USD based on a jury selection: $6,000 for first prize, $2,500 for second prize and $1,500 for third prize. 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.

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抯 offices, thereby visually communicating a sense of performance to employees and visitors alike.

 

The competition is open to any person practicing art. The initial entry is online, followed by a second round of short listed works before final selection. Entry is free, at our portal. We will only be admitting 2 entries per person. The panel of judges will initially review entries made through the online system. Following this, approximately 35 artists will be short listed. Only works that are short listed from the initial digital submission will be reviewed for final judging. Notifications and instructions on the regional collection process will be sent to the short listed artists only via email.

The entrant must specify the price of the artwork in the online registration form, as part of the initial online entry.

Notwithstanding the foregoing paragraph, submissions that are awarded any of first, second or third prizes will not receive the catalogue selling price for their artwork, the artwork will become the property of Yamana Gold and will not be returned.

Those short listed works that do not receive an award and those works that are not purchased by Yamana Gold will be returned to the artists.
