Announcement of PIPA Online 2010:
PIPA Prize creates PIPA Online via Facebook
The artist with the highest number of votes will receive R$10,000 (approx. US$5,500).
The organizers of PIPA – an initiative of Investidor Profissional, in partnership with the Rio de Janeiro’s Museum of Modern Art (MAM-Rio).
The Prize, created this year to encourage and promote the production of contemporary Brazilian art, announces a new category in the Prize. This is PIPA ONLINE, worth R$10,000 (approximately US$5,500), which will be awarded to one of PIPA’s Prize nominated artists. The artist will be chosen by public through an online voting system via PIPA’s Facebook page.
The idea behind PIPA ONLINE arose due to the excellent production quality of the nominees, worthy of wide dissemination, and also by the wide acceptance of the Prize on its Facebook page, which already has more than three thousand followers.
Voting will begin next August 15th and continue through October 24th.The winners of PIPA Online will be announced along with the winners of the other categories of PIPA, on October 28th, 2010.
PIPA ONLINE is a special contribution which adds to PIPA Prize, to be granted by the Jury Award to one of four finalists artists who will exhibit at MAM-Rio in September. The winner elected by the Award Jury will receive R$ 100,000 (approx. US$54,000) (including a residency programme in the prestigious institution Gasworks, London) – and the winner of the Popular Jury, will receive R$20,000 (approx. US$11,000), a result of the public vote during the course of the exhibition at MAM-Rio. The four finalists received the highest number of nominations made by the Award Jury, comprised of 32 names, among established artists, curators, independent or linked to institutions, art critics, collectors and galleries’ owners.
PIPA ONLINE allows people from other cities or countries become familiar with the universe of all the nominees – and not just the four finalists – which reflects a broad segment of the Brazilian contemporary art. Besides, people who cannot visit the exhibition at MAM Rio from September 25 to November 14, 2010, with works of the four artists finalists – Cinthia Marcelle, Marcelo Moscheta, Marcius Galan e Renata Lucas – will be able to either choose one of these names to be the winner of PIPA ONLINE, or to give their vote to an artist who was not a finalist.
The minimum number of votes for the artist to be competing is 100 “likes”.
PIPA ONLINE is not cumulative: ie it can not be awarded to the winner of the other two categories. If there is a match between the winners of PIPA ONLINE and the artist chosen by the Award Jury and Popular Jury will gain the status of second most voted artist on Facebook.
VOTE – from August 25 trough October 24th
The artists nominated by the Award Jury, the first phase of PIPA PRIZE, are the ones that are competing on PIPA ON LINE . On PIPA’s Facebook page, these participating artists will have albums with pictures of their works.

However, you can “like” more than one artist.
