NEW artists continue to be recognised and supported in Mojácar thanks to scholarships from the Council and the Valparaíso Foundation.

María Salmerón Huertas, a Spanish painter; Mario Marzan and Roxana Pérez, visual artists from Puerto Rico and Rafael Ruiz, a photographer and sculptor, have spent the last two weeks in Mojácar, working on their different artistic projects.

Raquel Belmonte, the Councilor for Culture for the municipality stressed the importance of these scholarships both to the city and to the artistic development of those they recognise and support.

Last January, the poet Ben Clark was awarded a scholarship and won the prestigious Poetry 2017 Loewe Award. 706 participants from 31 countries competed.

Scholarships for 2017 are now closed until 2018, in which applications will resume from the January 15.
