$1,000 COVID-19 prize for Africa artists

Published by The Nation on Wed, 12 Aug 2020

Medinat KanabeThe Arts Talent Africas (ARTTA) COVID-19 challenge is organising a competition for talented artists from 21 African nations.Winners in the competition will win cash prizes of as much as $1000 in the art challenge including painting, sculpture and others.According to the organizers, the artists are to create a piece on The coronavirus and its effect on the African community.Founded by two women, Melissa Ukamaka a Nigerian, and Nkaze Aichetou Njoya, a Cameroonian, ARTTA was designed to revamp the art industry in both countries and Africa at large.According to Ukamaka: Art is inherent to African culture and expression, and serves as a form of income for many youths who depend on their creativity as a lifeline, however, financing their business is often a challenge.She said that industries across Africa have been grossly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, reducing business opportunities and revenue for many, including the art industry.Regardless, those with the financial capabilities have best marketed their art through exhibitions, which, in some countries might be restricted right now for health and safety reasons, co-founder Aicha acknowledged.Tagged ARTTA COVID-19 Challenge, the competition hopes to empower artists aged 16 to 60 who do not have access to funding and visibility they need to reach their goals.Applicants are to register on the official website before August 24, 2020.Shortlisted artists will be given a set period of time to create a sculpture, painting, craft or other acceptable art form, after which the top 10 winners will be determined by a panel of judges.
