The ART PRIZE GERMANY is awarded annually by an independent jury of experts to artists with academic training, young artists (students) or professional self-taught artists. In addition, the award winners and nominees are supported in their public relations work.

With works in the three art disciplines of painting, sculpture/object, photography/digital art, german and foreign artists have the opportunity to apply with one to five works via the website

No topic specified: It can be interesting for the art prize jury and the audience if different art prize themes are specified every year – and artistic positions are presented by the applicants. However, topics often change quickly, so it makes sense to forego them, also in view of the art prize slogan “art powers future”. This slogan calls on artists to engage with issues that concern the future of life, politics, the economy, etc.

The digitally submitted works in the above-mentioned art disciplines will be viewed by an independent jury of experts. There are generally no application restrictions regarding age and origin. Young artists up to the age of 35 are supported by the art prize organizer to start their careers by waiving the processing fee for two submitted works. The KUNSTPREIS DEUTSCHLAND is therefore equally a competition platform for younger and already established artists.
