We are very pleased to present you an exciting initiative from one of our Executive Members – Sovereign – Consultoria Lda .

The Sovereign Art foundation (SAF) is launching the first Algarve Secondary Schools’ Art Prize organized by Sovereign – Consultoria Lda, together with support from their media partner Open Media S. A. both based in Lagoa, Algarve.

This Prize will follow the format of similar very successful events already held by SAF in Hong Kong, Guernsey and Bahrain. Nigel Anteney-Hoare, M.D. of Sovereign – Consultoria Lda, said “The main purpose of the Prize is to inspire, encourage and reward young artists in the community, to encourage cultural development and raise funds for disadvantaged children in the region”.
All Algarve Secondary Schools will be invited to submit five pupils’ artworks (from years 10, 11 and 12) for review by a panel of judges who will select, what is in their opinion, the best twenty. These artworks will be exhibited to the public at various locations in the Algarve.

The twenty artworks will be judged at a gala event in May 2017 to find the top two, with prizes being awarded to the two artists and their schools. A third prize will be awarded to the artwork which receives the most votes from the public, both online and directly during the public exhibitions.

The final twenty artworks will be auctioned to the public with the proceeds being divided between the artists and APEXA – (Association to support the exceptional person of the Algarve) a deserving local charity chosen by Sovereign for the 2016/2017 competition. APEXA’s objective is to contribute to the inclusion of its members in the areas of education, formation, laser, the workplace, sports and socially thus promoting their right to equal opportunities.

Sovereign is also currently looking for sponsors for this initiative, so if you want to be a part of this exciting project please contact Isobel Costa (icosta@sovereigngroup.com) and don’t pass up the opportunity to make a difference in some children’s lives.
