Creativity is not an abstract exercise, on the contrary, it requires the ability to contextualize and elaborate information and look for new solutions with an open spirit capable of listening and interacting.
NABA will award the scholarships following qualitative and commitment measures that the Jury will assess by reviewing the portfolio of projects and the motivation letter (artistic statement) of the candidates.
Portfolios are reviewed taking into consideration: aesthetic awareness, composition, drawing, design, color perception, spatial perception, quality of presentation, technique and originality. Favorable consideration is given to strong 2-D and 3-D work that shows fully rendered pieces, excellent craftsmanship, attention to technique, and original design.
