Absa L’Atelier Art Competition

The Absa L’Atelier Competition is South Africa’s most prestigious art competition, offering young emerging artists between the ages of 21 and 35 the opportunity to receive recognition for their work and develop their talents abroad. Held annually, it is the longest running national arts competition – having launched the careers of many South African artists who have become household names on a global level.

The top two artists win a range of prizes, including cash, as well as a coveted opportunity to study at the Cité Internationale Des Arts in the heart of Paris, where they can develop their talent surrounded by leading artists from across the world.

Absa believes in supporting the arts to contribute to the creative and intellectual prosperity of South Africa as a whole – ultimately benefiting all South Africans. As the only financial services institution in the world that has actively embraced art as part of its corporate image, we have shown that we are not only the biggest corporate patron of the visual arts in South Africa, but is also the custodian of the largest South African corporate art collection.

The art is not hidden in a vault somewhere, but is proudly displayed in Absa’s foyers, offices and branches. It’s there for all to appreciate and enjoy. In fact, Absa has been referred to in the media as ‘the bank inside an art gallery!’download Absa form


Our belief in the talent of South Africa’s emerging artists finds expression in the Sasol New Signatures art competition, presented in collaboration with the Association of Arts Pretoria.

  • It provides a strong platform to evaluate, appreciate and advance South Africa’s emerging talent;
  • It provides entry into the dynamic world of visual arts;
  • It inspires emerging artists to show their work in public; and
  • It offers artists a valuable learning experience with its outreach information sessions.

New, innovative and emerging young artists are invited to enter the 2012 Sasol New Signatures Art Competition. The competition, now in its 23rd year and sponsored by Sasol, is held annually and is open to all South African artists who are 18 years and older who have not held a solo exhibition, except for academic purposes before. (A solo exhibition entails a body of work of at least 20 works exhibited in a commercial gallery.)

National information sessions are held to provide insight into the judging process and advice on conceptualisation, display and presentation of work. The information sessions are presented by chairperson, Peter Binsbergen and covers the competition’s history and logistics.

Artists are invited to submit a maximum of two artworks at one of the nine collection points around the country.

“This competition serves to benchmark young talent, not only in South Africa but worldwide. From what we have seen in the past young talent in South Africa holds its own internationally and I look forward to seeing how young artists create new meanings and challenge boundaries in 2012. There may ultimately be one winner, but being selected as a finalist in this competition carries with it the weighted status of being recognized as a young and upcoming South African artist,” says Peter Binsbergen, chairperson of the 2012 Sasol New Signatures art competition.

Regional judges will select approximately 100 works which will be exhibited at the Sasol New Signatures exhibition at the Pretoria Art Museum from 30 August 2012 to 30 September 2012.
