The Berlin Art Prize is a newly established independent award annually honoring contemporary art from Berlin. On June 22, 2013 the Berlin Art Prize will be awarded for the first time. Founded by contributors to Berlin’s arts and culture scene, the objective of the prize is to support the creative endeavors of Berlin-based artists. Three winners, selected by an independent jury of art professionals, will be awarded with an exhibition, representation in a catalog, prize money and a two-week residency in a villa in San Martino, Italy. An additional 20 shortlisted artists will be presented in the exhibition and catalog.
The application period is now open through 1 May 2013.
