ArtConnect's Take: "The Allegro Prize 2021 stands out for two clear reasons: it has no entry fees and it awards a significant amount of money to the winners. It is also rare for an art prize to have a category specifically for artists who don't hold a university degree. Artists who have taken an alternative route to develop their career should take a close look." --- Allegro and Contemporary Lynx are proud to announce the second edition of the Allegro Prize competition with a total prize pool of 50 000 PLN. The competition is aimed to support and promote visual art and to find new talented artists. Entries are open to visual artists of all disciplines, namely students and graduates of art schools and colleges as well as artists who haven’t graduated from art schools or colleges but have a documented artistic pathway. To help artists in the difficult situation caused by the coronavirus pandemic, the organisers decided to waive all fees to enter the prize. Participation in the competition is free for everyone. The jury will award three following prizes: Main Prize — 35.000 PLN, Second Prize — 10.000 PLN, and Third Prize — 5.000 PLN. There will also be 10 special mentions.
