The CFA Artist of the Year Award 2018
Award and Grant Announcements
This year we had an overwhelming participation of over 860 visual artists who competed for Circle Foundation’s Artists of The Year Award. Art is undeniably subjective and comparing artworks is arguably impossible. The purpose of our annual competition is not to compare or to measure the artists and their artworks, but instead to award and reward as many artists possible, artists who make remarkable work, who have a dedicated and exceptional practice. In 2018/9, we gave away 2,000€ in 3 grants and then the front and back cover as well as pages in our magazines. We also awarded 150 more artists with Finalist and Excellence Certificates.
First Place Award
Cinta Vidal - Painter (Spain) 1,000 Euros + Front Cover of Spotlight Magazine
Second Place Award
Nicolas Bruno - Photographer (USA) 500 Euros + Back Cover of Spotlight Magazine
Third Place Award
