About PIPA Online
PIPA Online is the category of the Prize in which all participating artists of this current edition are invited to participate. Participation is no mandatory. The winner is defined by the number of votes received on his/hers page, here on the website.
PIPA Online was created in 2010, the year in which the Prize was established, with the main objective of promoting and supporting the nominated artists and Brazilian contemporary art through the internet. The category is based entirely on the public participation in order to choose a winner. “The online award seeks to mainly include, give visibility, and promote artists who do not have a strong institutional presence” (Luiz Camillo Osorio, PIPA Institute Curator). In 2016 there were 10.000 calculated votes, and PIPA’s websites received more than 60 thousand unique visitors in two weeks.
PIPA Online Regulation
The voting occurs in two shifts, lasting eight days each, always from Sunday to Sunday. During this period, website visitors should access the pages of the participating artists in order to vote. The winner is the artist who receives the highest number of votes in his/her page, here on the website.
Only the artists who receive a minimum of 500 votes on the 1st round will move on to the 2nd round. The votes will be reset after the end of the 1st round and will start again at 2nd round. The 2nd round of PIPA Online will start on July 30th until August 6th.
The winner will be the artist who receives the highest number of votes on his/her page at the end of the 2nd round. The winner will receive R$ 10 thousand. The artist with the second highest number of votes will receive R$ 5 thousand. Both artists will donate a work to PIPA Institute (to be defined as a mutual agreement between the artists and the Coordination of the Institute).
In the case of only one artist receiving 500 votes in the 1st round, he/she will be declared the winner and there won’t be a 2nd round. If no artist receives 500 votes in the 1st round, there will be no winner.
