The Art Prize Germany, awarded by the renowned Galerie Depelmann, is presented annually and awarded to academic artists. The award is endowed with a total of 15,000 euros. In addition, the award winners receive long-term support through exhibitions of their works, including at the established art fair “Kunstsalon Herrenhausen” (Herrenhausen Palace, Hannover), press work and support for their activities.
The origins of this international art award go back to 2014. With works from the art disciplines of painting, sculpture, photography / digital art, artists from Germany and the world have the opportunity to apply with one to three works.
No topic given: It can certainly be very interesting for a jury, among other things, for artists who apply for an art prize to specify a topic, among other things a political topic that our representatives “grit their teeth” on, where artistic lateral entrants are asked is.
Is art without decoration? Maybe. Does art without a theme arise from nowhere? Might be. If no topic is specified for this art prize competition, this should not mean that the applicant is not allowed to dedicate himself / herself to one topic or, if two or three submissions are made, to several topics. With pleasure, especially since the submitted works have to be given titles.
The winners of the German Art Prize are selected by an independent jury of experts. There are generally no application restrictions for academically trained artists. Young artists up to the age of 35 are also financially supported, as the processing fee is waived for two submitted works.
