The competition is organized into categories: Performing Arts, Visual Arts, Audiovisual, Design, Classical Music, Popular Music, and Text, each with subcategories. This year Nascente brings news in the Text area, with two new subcategories: Manga / Graphic Novel and HQ. Each category has a Judging Committee, responsible for evaluating the works, composed of two USP professors of recognized competence in the area and an expert from outside the University. During the evaluations, master’s and doctoral students from stricto sensu courses in the areas of Arts, Letters, and Linguistics at USP may register to follow the works (see details in the edict).

After registration, the Judging Committees analyze, select and classify the works registered in each category, checking the documentation sent and the adherence to the categories. The selected candidates then participate in thematic exhibitions, with public presentations grouped by category, which take place throughout the year in USP cultural spaces. The finalists of each category will then be announced, who participate in the Awards Ceremony where the winners are announced (check the calendar).

The Judging Committees will announce the winners and may nominate up to two works. The winners of each category are entitled to a prize of R$ 4,000.00 as copyright for the use of the work. In case of a tie, the prize will be divided, and for group entries, the amount will be prorated among the participants.

The selected artists present their work in thematic exhibitions and performances in various public places in USP. In 2023, events will take place in October and November. In the image, the stage of the Amphitheater for Conventions Camargo Guarnieri prepared for the 2022 Popular Music Showcase.


Both the award winners and the honorable mention winners are committed to, if invited, participating in the Circuito Nascente, in addition to another public and free presentation, on a date and place to be agreed upon later, with costs covered by the event organizer.

Created in 1990, Nascente USP is an initiative developed by the Pro-Rectory of Culture and University Extension of USP. Traditionally, the competition has been aimed at stimulating, identifying, and distinguishing artistic endeavors within the University through a competition open to USP students, and last year it reached its 29th edition, having over time thousands of entries and awarded hundreds of artists (see how the 2022 awards event went). Learn more about the program also through the program’s Facebook.
