This Award is open to visual artists who were born, studied, work or live in the Dutch border provinces, Rhineland Westphalia in Germany or Flanders in Belgium, and who graduated from an art institution between 7 and 16 years (2006-2015) ago. The prize aims to stimulate artists during a period when a turning point in their careers is taking place for many.

  • Gerd Borkelmann, visual artist, curator, Germany
  • Marcel Doorduin, visual artist, teacher, The Netherlands

Selection criteria are quality of work and a plan for using the prize for the development of one’s own career. You can submit from March 1 to July 1, 2022, 24 h. In September we will announce the 3 finalists and then visit their studios.

The prize will be awarded during the festive opening of an exhibition of the works of the 3 finalists on Sunday 16 October 2022. The 2 finalists who did not win the prize will each receive €1000.

In addition, Contemporary Art Platform WARP in St. Niklaas, Belgium, offers the three winning finalists an exhibition.
