Delfina Foundation and Samdani Art Foundation have joined forces on the Samdani Art Award, a prestigious art award in Bangladesh for artists aged 20-40.

The bi-annual award aims to support, promote and highlight emerging contemporary artists of Bangladesh. The winner is awarded a three-month residency at Delfina Foundation.

The Samdani Art Award is one of the highlights of the Dhaka Art Summit, also organised by the Samdani Art Foundation in collaboration with Bangladesh National Academy of Fine and Performing Arts.  This non-profit platform is the first of its kind for Bangladesh and one of the largest platforms for South Asian art globally.
