The VAO Art Competition benefits from the support of cultural and corporate partners and sponsors who share our commitment to promoting the arts and arts events. These events engage not only the international art world but also the community that hosts them.


The involvement of these partners takes myriad forms, from awarding prestigious prizes to sponsoring venues, curators and exhibitions. The longevity of these relationships – and the consistent expansion of the VAO programming that they enable – is a testament to how our successful partnerships benefit all those involved.
