Competition rules

Sculpture Prize 2018


Since its foundation in 1998, the Fundació Vila Casas has set itself the aim of promoting contemporary artists and the dissemination of their work. On this basis, we are currently opening up the competition for the Contemporary Painting, Photography and Sculpture Prizes; an initiative that also enables us to increase the breadth of our collection. 

These prizes alternate per year, discipline and museum where they are based. In this regard, in 2018 we will hold the Fundació Vila Casas Sculpture Prize at the Can Mario Contemporary Sculpture Museum in Palafrugell, Girona.

Tradition and culture are the axes
or identity symbols of our Country.
