** Being the longest running competition of its kind in South Africa, Sasol New Signatures has played a pivotal role over the years in unearthing local artists and promoting them to the art-loving public.

** This year’s competition intends to remain true to this legacy by looking for those hidden artists that want to break into the mainstream.
** Held annually in partnership with the Association of Arts Pretoria, the competition is open to all South African artists who are 18 years and older, who have not yet held a solo exhibition.

** A solo exhibition entails a body of work of at least 20 works exhibited in a commercial gallery.
** Artists can submit their artworks in all artistic mediums – painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, photography, performance art, video and installations.

** As part of the competition, there will be Information Sessions taking place across the country from end-April.
