For its 12th edition the prize offers even more opportunities to the artists that participate: as a matter of fact, 103 collaborations with international partners are currently available.
In the last three years, Arte Laguna Prize has assigned 104 special prizes, introduced its artists to festivals, collective exhibitions and international events, established 24 collaborations with companies and art platforms and awarded 31 artists with art residencies.
For many artists their journey started here and then became more and more established thanks to their determination and abilities. That is the case for Carlos Martiel, Cuban artist who was the absolute winner of the performance category back in 2013. Thanks to the attention from the media and the support from the critics, he was able to spread his wings and work with several art galleries, until he got to the 57th Venice Biennale. His highly emotional performances, featuring his body, have captured the attention of the public and of the international critics. The Recycle Group,exhibited their works at the Venice Biennale, as well. In 2016 they were among the finalists of Arte Laguna Prize and this year they were part of the Russia Pavilion with their artwork Paradise Network. There is no shortage of collaborations with big brands, such as in the case of the Russian artist Sasha Frolova, finalist of the 7th edition of Arte Laguna Prize and winner of the “Personal Exhibitions” prize at the Akneo gallery in Naples and at the Federica Ghizzoni gallery in Milan, who also won a contest for designing a backpack for Braccialini. And of artistic partnerships, like in the case of Gian Giacomo Borin winner in 2014 of the Business for Art prize with the company Riva 1920 of Cantù. After exhibiting at the Venice Arsenale his project Bricco Light, a lamp entirely made of briccola wood and iron that can be used both as a swing lamp and as a table lamp, he became one of the designers of the same company that selected his project among the 200 that were submitted. Hagar Fletcher, Israeli artist that creates her artworks using plastic recovery materials, was among the finalists in 2013 and in the same year she was chosen by the brand Zara to create an installation for its Milan flagship store and in 2015 she was at the Israel Pavilion of Expo Milano with one of her artworks.
Silvia Manazza finalist in 2016 for the sculpture section and winner of The Swatch Art Peace Hotel Art Residency in Shangai, saw her artworks featured in several fashion magazines, from Vogue to Io Donna; she was also the protagonist of an exhibition at palazzo Salmatoris in Chierasco, Cuneo and her works are currently on display at the Musei Civici of Pavia.
Going back in time,Marcus Jansen,today one of the best contemporary artists from New York, was one of the finalists of the 7th edition in 2013 and won an exhibition at Bianca Maria Rizzi Gallery in Milan; in 2016 he was at the Triennale of Milan with a solo exhibition. He is considered a pioneer in redefining urban landscape painting and a documentary about him that was recently released, Marcus Jansen: Examine & Report From cinema to music:Domenico dell’Osso, finalist of the 5th edition in 2011, with his surreal paintings caught the attention of the singer Caparezza, who asked him to design the cover of Museica, the album he released in 2014. Worth mentioning is also Gary Chan (Chan Kwok Hung) from Hong Kong, again one of the finalists of the 5th edition, who won the Coca-Cola World Photo Contest, the National Geographic Photography Contest and the Sony World Photography Award.
The call for artists of the 12th edition of Arte Laguna Prize has been extended to December 18th ; artists who haven't applied yet will get the chance to benefit from even more artistic opportunities thanks to the Cultural Association MoCA.

Arrived at its 12th edition the Arte Laguna Prize, promoted by MoCa, Cultural Association based in Venice that works in the field of art and culture since 2006, opens the call for artists for the Prize "ARS (Art Reuse Sustainability) of glass" with the support of CoReVe , the National Consortium for the collection, reuse and recovery of glass and in partnership with ArcSos - Archives of Sustainability, Cà Foscari University of Venice, which will also be present with a jury member during the selection.

Since 2015 Arte Laguna Prize has created a special section dedicated to Art and Sustainability, in order to raise awareness among artists towards the Reuse Recycle Reduce strategies of certain materials. Over 250 artists coming from 46 different countries took part to the first edition, dedicated to the reuse of paper.

A date with sustainability and environmentally conscious recycling, following the European and national trends that see a growing interest towards environmentally friendly lifestyles, even in the art world. Above all, this prize aims to promote an environmentally conscious creative act, in line with CoReVe's vision, which aspires to achieve an increasing awareness of the quality of the materials delivered. Therefore, "ARS (Art Reuse Sustainability)” will be dedicated to glass with a double purpose: to encourage sustainable art and contribute to the dissemination of a precise message about conscious recycling. According to the data elaborated by CoReVe - Consortium for the glass recovery, in 2016 glass recycling increased by 2,1% compared to 2015, reaching approximately 1,864,000 tonnes.

The prize for the winning artist will be of 3.000 euros. The artists will be judged by a special panel of judges that will include Igor Zanti, curator and head of jury of the Arte Laguna Prize, a representative of ArcSos - Archives of Sustainability, Cà Foscari University of Venice and one or more representatives of CoReVe. The selected artist will be announced during the opening ceremony of the finalists exhibition on the 17th of March 2018 at the Arsenale of Venice. .

Artists, designers, photographers, video artists and performers can participate to the prize. The projects submitted are expected to deal with the given topic in a very original and creative way. The commission hopes that the prize won't be treated simply as a “new aesthetic” of recycling, but it rather expects from participants something unexpected and surprising, because as Jean Dubuffet said: “Art does not lie down on the bed that is made for it”.

Applications must be submitted by November 16, 2017.
Further information and terms and conditions are available at www.artelagunaprize.com

CoReVe
CoReVe is the non-profit Consortium that aims to achieve the goals of recycling and recovery of glass packaging waste produced in Italy. It has been established on 23rd October 1997 by the main glass companies in compliance with the Legislative Decree 22/97 to organize the recovery of the glass waste which come from the separate collection, in order to set up the guidelines for the prevention activities and to ensure the recycling of recovered glass.
In particular CoReVe deals with information about recycling and glass recovery issues which are useful for citizens and it organizes the specific prevention plan with the guidelines to reach the recycling goals. The Consortium considers the communication activities for citizens extremely important, as citizens are the protagonists of the waste separate collection. According to this concept, the ideation of the special prize wants to create another occasion for the recycling awareness. The works’ originality and effect will be important as they have to represent the glass features, a material that is the circular economy’s perfect representation.
