In the year which marked its 10th edition, Art Arrived at Colombo, promoted by the Colombro Centre and co-organised by State of the Art, launched an art award with the aim of supporting emerging artists. The jury panel comprised representatives from the following prize partners: Fundação Arpad Szenes-Vieira da Silva, Fundação D. Luís I, Museu Coleção Berardo, National Museum of Ancient Art, National Museum of Contemporary Art — Chiado Museum, and a Sonae Sierra representative. The Museu Coleção Berardo exhibition presents a selection of ten works by the finalist artists within the context of this award, which "incentivised artists to create a work of art based on the theme 'the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.'"

Atelier Contencioso, with the installation Sopro, is the overall winner of this 1st edition of the Art Arrived at Colombo Award. Adriana Proganó, Ana Malta AKA NUMPÁRA, AMANTE, Duarte Perry, Henrique Neves, Manuel Rodrigues Almeida, Maria de Brito Matias, Nicoleta Sandulescu and Tomé Capa are the other nine finalists who will see their works of sculpture, painting, and art installations on display.
