The museum's room zero hosts, from July to September, the first edition of the Paula Rego Prize, an initiative that offers support to students of the Lisbon Fine Arts School by exhibiting and rewarding their talent for storytelling through drawing. On 18 September, the anniversary of the opening of the Casa das Histórias Paula Rego, the Paula Rego Prize will be personally awarded by the artist to a work from the exhibition - the visible face of the underlying selective competition. The competition, exhibition and catalogue are a powerful incentive to young fine arts students and offer a chance for significant exposure within the contemporary art world. This first edition is targeted at students on the graduate course, as well as masters students, and the winning work will become part of Paula Rego's private collection.
