public votes, each of whom will receive R8000 towards producing work for a
group exhibition to be held at the Sandton Civic Gallery, Johannesburg from
July 25 - August 26, 2000. One overall winner will be chosen from these
works to receive the grand prize totaling R30 000.
Members of the public are invited to nominate any artist countrywide, whose
work has been exhibited in a recognised gallery between January and December
Simply complete the nomination form, available in all participating
galleries and return postage paid to FNB Vita Awards.
