Current info: August 2021 / Art prize Germany 2021

The application phase ended on May 31, 2021. Around 250 academically trained artists from 39 nations applied with over 500 submitted exhibits, including over 100 young artists (up to 35 years of age).

Works by 48 artists (31 female artists / 17 masculine artists) were nominated by the jury, including five from Berlin, four each from Munich, Düsseldorf and Hannover, and three from Karlsruhe. Nine nominated artists live and work in North Rhine-Westphalia, six each in Bavaria and Lower Saxony – and five each in Baden-Württemberg and Berlin. The nominated artists come from a total of 16 nations, most of them from Germany, ahead of South Korea. The KUNSTPREIS DEUTSCHLAND can therefore be described as an international art prize.
