Passion to Perform is an initiative of Yamana Gold that complements a performance based culture driven by an entrepreneurial passion that is mirrored in the passion and commitment demonstrated by many emerging 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’s practice and encourage them to pursue their passion.
Individuals are welcome to submit paintings, drawings, sculptures and photography as entries to Passion to Perform. Prizes will be awarded in $USD based on a jury selection of: $7,000 for first prize, $2,500 for second prize and $1,500 for third prize. In addition, a fund has been established to acquire artworks from the shortlist of finalists, which will then become part of the permanent collection of Yamana Gold.
Entry is free and online at www.passiontoperform.ca
