Talent and inspiration are not always enough for artists from the areas of music, literature, fine arts and film to make it in the arts scene. In Bahia, the Braskem Culture and Arts Award serves as the support that many of these professionals lack.
Since 1996, the contest has selected the productions of new artists through specialized judging committees, and awards them with sponsorship to launch their works.
