Sovereign needs sponsors for art prize

Sovereign – Consultoria Lda, based in Lagoa is, at the end of September launching the 3rd Students Art Prize Algarve.

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 Sch-ools are invited to participate and twenty finalists will have their work exhibited in Lagos, Faro, Albufeira and Lagoa from January to April 2019.
In May 2019 there will be a grand prize-giving ceremony at the Lady in Red – Galeria de Arte in Lagoa, with prizes being awarded to the top 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. Subsequently, the final twenty artworks will be auctioned to the public with the proceeds being divided between the artists and a deserving local charity chosen by Sovereign for the 2018/2019 competition

Whilst Sovereign supports all the administrative and running costs of the Prize, they need sponsors for donations towards the prize money as well as for the catering for the exhibitions and the Grand Final event. They also need a sponsor willing to transport the artwork to and from the four exhibitions and need an ‘entertaining’ auctioneer!
All sponsors will benefit from extensive publicity at the events, online and in the local press from now until the final event.
If you are interested in joining Sovereign in this exciting venture to help local students and raise funds for charity, contact: Isobel Costa on or telephone 282 340 480.
