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




24 awards will be made annually by 8 – 12 international jurors. Starting in 2019, there will be seperate prizes for miniprint and mixed media:
  • There are four main prizes in each category (first, second, third and special prize).
  • There are also six awards for excellence and honorary prizes each.
  • There are four additional "Amber Awards" for color.
The total value of the prizes is about EUR 2,000, in addition to the 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 24 prizes will be rewarded in the form of PR publication in German on the Internet and a printed certificate. 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 service on the bottom of the page or on the 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 the jury members) will receive a certificate, which we will send together with the art book.
