In each edition, SWAB Barcelona rewards its participants for their contribution to emerging talent and contemporary art. This 2020, despite the fact that the fair will take place virtually, it will continue to award the Espronceda residency award with an artistic stay at its facilities in Barcelona; the DKV for the best Spanish artist, the MANGO for the best emerging artist and the Diezy7 Collection drawing, whose award-winning work is selected by a jury made up of contemporary art curators and critics.
