This competition is open worldwide to entrants over 18 years of age.
The first place winner receives a travel to Art Basel in Miami or Hong Kong including 1,500 Euro (approx. 1,600 USD) pocket money.
For one year, the winner will be actively supported in his career. As part of a one-year mentoring by one of the jury members, the winner defines goals with the mentor to boost his career. Next steps are planned together and the winner benefits from the contacts and experience of his mentor.
Moreover, all ten finalists get the chance to exhibit their works during BLOOOM – the converging art show in Cologne (Germany) in front of more than 35,000 visitors. On-site they'll be able to make valuable contacts with curators and galleries.
