Colección SOLO and Powland Network Powcademy, an Amsterdam-based collective dedicated to promoting sound art, launch the PowOSLO Awards to recognise the best works in this artistic discipline.
The awards have been launched with the aim of supporting and recognising the best international sound artworks through a first prize and three additional mentions. The first prize, ‘Best Soundart’, will receive 10,000 euros and the opportunity to exhibit the piece at Espacio SOLO, the museum in Puerta de Alcalá (Madrid) which houses Colección SOLO. The jury will also select winners in the categories of ‘Best Emerging Artist’, ‘Most Viral Work’ and ‘Most Innovative Instrument’, with each receiving a 1,000 euros prize.
Award winners will be selected from among the participating entries by an international jury of professionals and experts from different fields in contemporary arts. The winning artworks will be announced at an awards ceremony held in April at Espacio SOLO.
The call for entries to this first edition of the PowSOLO Awards opens on 30 November and closes on 28 February 2020. Competition rules, instructions on how to submit artworks and other relevant information on the awards can be found at PowSolo Awards site.
