The Marcantônio Vilaça Award, offered by the National Confederation of Industry - CNI and the National Departments of Social Service for Industry - SESI and the National Service for Industrial Learning - SENAI, receives applications until March 22 for its 2019/2020 edition. The celebrated award celebrates its 15th anniversary by offering its winners R$50 grants for productions, which are accompanied by a critic and a curator.

In this edition, the award undergoes some changes, changing its name to Marcantonio Vilaça National Industry Award for the Visual Arts and selected 30 finalist artists, not just 20.

Five artists will be awarded for their careers, after an evaluation of their portfolios. To participate, it is essential that the applicant is a native or naturalized Brazilian or a foreigner with a permanent residence visa for more than 5 years and has a National Registry of Foreigners (RNE) in the form of the Foreigners' Statute. Winners in previous editions cannot participate again.

The works will be evaluated by a jury composed of the curator of the Prize and six other curators, critics and thinkers of art in Brazil. The 30 finalists of the award will be announced until April 3, 2019. The award should take place in September, during the opening of the finalists' exhibition at the Museu de Arte Brasileira da FAAP (MAB – FAAP).
