PIPA Online promotes Brazilian contemporary art and the nominees through the internet

In 2012, Berna Reale and Tinho – 1st and 2nd place winners, were the artists who received the highest number of votes in that edition. In an exclusive video-interview, the artists discuss the importance of the award and the strategies used by each in order to win the category.

Reale recounts how she had to ask permission from the Secretary of Culture of Pará (her state of origin) in order to present her works in the Book Fair which took place at the time in Belém, and that the most important aspect of the category was the possibility of showcasing her works to people who most likely, would never have contact with it. Tinho spoke about the online campaign, created by his friends, where they elaborated comic items in order to earn more votes from the public, and gave emphasis to the online promotion, which allowed for people from Brazil and abroad to participate.
