Calling all artists: the Passion to Perform Competition is now open! Passion To Perform is an international art contest that aims to recognize and reward outstanding emerging art talent. Through each edition of their contest, they build a collection that reflects our ideals of excellence in performance and expressing passion in what we do.

Established in 2012, Passion to Perform is a competition with a mandate to foster the important contributions art makes to vibrant communities. The objective, since the beginning, has been to support and encourage emerging artists from around the world and develop a world class collection of work representing these artists.

Passion To Perform celebrates the interconnection between performance and passion, and aims to award winning entrants with meaningful compensation that can positively impact each artist’s practice and encourage them to pursue their passion.
