 Annual contest (miniprint + mixed media): read more in our FAQ

20 awards will be made annually by 8 – 12 international jurors. From 2019 will be seperate prizes for miniprint and mixed media:
  • There are four main prizes each (first, second, third + special prize).
  • There are also 6 excellent and honorary prizes each.
The total value of the prizes is about 2000 Euro + non-quantifiable value of a PR release.

After a basic selection of the original pictures up to 50 - 100 finalists (nominated artists) will be selected by an international First Juror. All 20 prizes will be rewarded in the form of PR publication in German on the Internet + a print certificat. The first prizes will be rewarded with a small solo exhibition.

The posts will take the form of a guided meditation on art, in which the award-winning image can be viewed mindfully. In addition, we will report on the solo exhibitions. The winners will be informed, when their article is published. The date of publication will depend on editorial decisions.

You can get an idea of the content on our German blog if you use the Google translation there in the bottom or right sidebar!

The category "Art excellence" is promoted on our congratulations pages, so that these blog posts can be shared or sent instead of a postcard greeting (example: "Für Kunstliebhaber").

All award winners (and also the jury members) will receive a certificate, which we will send together with the art book.
