Calling all Artists! Apply for the Yamana Gold Passion to Perform Artist Prize.

Artists are welcome to submit paintings, drawings, sculptures and photography as entries to Passion to Perform. Prizes will be awarded in $USD based on a jury selection of: $6,000 for first prize, $2,500 for second prize, and $1,500 for third prize. In addition, a fund has been established to acquire artworks from the shortlist of finalists, which will then become part of the permanent collection of Yamana Gold.

Passion to Perform is an initiative of Yamana Gold, a leading gold producer with operations and properties throughout the Americas that integrates a commitment to sustainability and stakeholder engagement best practices in all its business activities. This commitment complements a performance-based culture driven by an entrepreneurial passion that is mirrored in the passion and commitment demonstrated by many emerging artists.
