Financial Times/Oppenheimer Funds Emerging Voices Awards 2016 ($40,000 Prize)

The FT/OppenheimerFunds Emerging Voices Awards aims to recognise extraordinary artistic talent in three categories – fiction literature, film-making and art across more than 100 emerging market nations.

There is a remarkable structural shift in the world, propelled by economic progress in the developing markets and the advanced reach of the internet. More connectivity and greater variety of voices in the business, science and arts communities are leading to a new renaissance. The Financial Times and OppenheimerFunds are delighted to provide a platform to recognise the people contributing to these markets.

The Emerging Voices Awards will be open to passport holders of emerging nations in three categories:

1. Africa and the Middle East: including, but not limited to, paintings, drawings, sculptures, installations, photographs, prints and mixed media.
2. Asia-Pacific: Works of fiction published in English.
3. Latin America and the Caribbean: Films in any language with English subtitles.
The judges aim to reward those in each of the eligible art forms whose work shows outstanding talent and in some way furthers understanding of their region.

Categories:

  • the best creators of published fiction in English or English translation in Asia-Pacific

Prize:
