The online version of PIPA has happened in two rounds. The first one was from 17th July to 24th July. The second from 31rst July to 7th August. Only the artists that achieved more than 500 votes in the first round were able to participate in the second. Among 63 artists initially participating, only 10 were classified for the 2º round. We have talked, exclusively, with the winner Jaider Esbell and the second placed artist Arissana Pataxó. They have told us about their experience with PIPA and the impact after achieving the biggest number of votes. Jaider is completely satisfied with the number of people who can now know his work and meet his culture. Arissana also has noticed the growth of people in touch with her art.
