Nigerian Breweries Plc. and African Artists' Foundation (AAF) announces the Call for Entries for the eighth edition of the National Art Competition.

This year’s theme Future Histories asks artists creating work in these mediums, and beyond to express to the nation what a future history is, what it can be, and what it must be for Nigerians and artists alike. Artists are encouraged to think laterally about the social, political, and cultural climate of their local communities and Nigeria as a country, whilst exploring their terra incognita art practice.

Future Histories is a creative production of how art explores both the imaginary and the inevitable elements of the future while maintaining its innate quality of documentation and foresight. What material goods are those of the future, and how does our historical past play into their creation? With Lagos’ status as an art capitol manifesting before our eyes, what is at stake for Nigerian artists? Through the creation of innovative work that both presents and continues to question those viewing it, Nigerian Breweries and African Artists Foundation asks you to participate in Future Histories.

The competition includes a cash prize of Two Million Naira for the first place winner and provides the artist with national and international exposure and exhibition opportunities and a cash prize of One Million Naira each for both second and third place winners.
This year’s competition is open to all mediums. Only proposals will be accepted, completed or existing artwork will be disqualified. All entries should be sent as a pdf attachment to nac2015@africanartists.org

Deadline for submission of work – July 3, 2015
