It’s time for all artists who want the coveted prize to start preparing their works of art.

The metro, in collaboration with the Lizamore & Associates Mentorship Programme, is calling on all artists to enter the prestigious, nationally acclaimed Thami Mnyele Fine Arts Awards.

This will be the 31st edition of the competition.

All artworks must be suitable for exhibition and must have been completed in the 12 months preceding the closing date for entries to the competition.

The judges will select the best artworks for exhibition.

“We encourage artists who specialise in contemporary fine art to start preparing their work while there is still time,” said MMC for community services Clr Dora Mlambo.
