The process to select the ten winner projects of the 28th Edition of Circuitos de Artes Plásticas started in February 2017. Since 28 years ago, the Regional Government of Madrid organises this call for projects to fund the making of creative proposals by authors younger than 35 years. In addition to contribute to the production of the work, the award includes the exhibition of the pieces in the Sala de Arte Joven of Madrid.
