The Luxembourg Art Prize is an annual international artistic prize organized by the Pinacothèque, a private museum located in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. Every year the Prize aims to discover talents, amateur or professional, regardless of age and nationality.
Since it was created in 2015, the Luxembourg Art Prize aims to launch or boost the careers of artists at the international level by giving them a sound reference to add to their curriculum vitae.
Each year, 24 finalists are selected by the museum and 3 laureates are designated by an independent jury. The prize money is broken down as follows: €50,000 for 1st place, €20,000 for 2nd place, and €10,000 for 3rd place. The laureates are free to use this money however they please.
The museum also issues official certificates to acknowledge the artistic achievements of all the participants, even if they are not selected as finalists. This certificate is issued in 9 different languages, providing the artists with international prestige and recognition.
The Prize is aimed at artists working in one or more of the following media: drawing, printing, installation, painting, photography, sculpture, mixed media, decorative art (textiles and material, glass, wood, metal, ceramics, mosaic, paper or other techniques).
Applications must be submitted online by September 30 of each year. Artists can register for one, two, or three groups, as long as they respect the registration deadlines for each group. Group 1 closes on March 31, Group 2 closes on June 30, and Group 3 closes on September 30. For each group, candidates will have until September 30 to complete their application.
