The purpose of the ArtTour International Masters Awards Ceremony is to recognize visual artists and their artworks. But more than giving the spotlight to deserving individuals, being acknowledged by an award-giving body, dubbed as The Oscars of the Visual Arts, opens up a whole new horizon for them. Their most prestigious award yet is the ATIM Top 60 Masters Awards.
Every year, visual artists from all over the world come together, vying for a spot in the ATIM Top 60 Masters Awards. This year, however, the event will not take place because of the pandemic. But ArtTour International Founder and CEO Viviana Puello has announced that ATIM is accepting submissions for the 2021 ArtTour International Masters Awards Ceremony, which will be held next spring.
Founders Viviana Puello and Alan Grimandi stay optimistic that entries for the ATIM Top 60 Masters Awards will cascade in the next couple of months. Art never stops — not for anyone. And she believes that artists do not as well. Amid the cancellation of many events, Viviana sets her eyes on the next year. Indeed, there isn’t a hurdle that she has not overcome.
She is a well-acclaimed international art business expert and CEO of ArtTour International. Viviana Puello has built strong connections through her tireless efforts for the art community, and the ATIM Top 60 Masters Awards is one of them. Among her other notable works include the ArtTour International program that airs at 5:30 PM every Thursday in New York, and a workshop called Debunking the Myth of Starving Artist, where she educates artists on how to create streams of income using their passion.
Viviana understands the problems that artists face. As an artist herself and curator for over 20 years, she knows what it means to thrive in an underappreciated industry. She created the ArtTour International with ArtTour International Magazine and the ATIM Top 60 Masters Awards with Alan Grimandi to create more opportunities for artists across the world. The awards ceremony is unlike any other. It serves as a haven for veteran and aspiring artists. In each year that it is celebrated, ArtTour International brings together 60 of the industry’s brightest and opens up a network for them.
At the core of ArtTour International is the prime duty to elevate the status of visual artists. More than the event itself, ArtTour International aspires to lead the charge in intercultural exchange and to promote global peace awareness through art.
The ATIM Top 60 Masters Awards is done in collaboration with the non-profit organization Create4Peace. ArtTour International has brought the event to several countries, including Miami, New York, Ferrara, Italy, and Montagnac, France.
Next year, in spring, as scheduled, ArtTour International will be taking the world’s most esteemed visual arts award ceremony to Florence, Italy.
Visual artists can submit their entries by visiting the ATIM Top 60 Masters Awards website. Nominations are also open on the site.
