BLOOOM Award by WARSTEINER, the international competition for emerging artists, is now open for entries for 2016 and inviting artists around the world to participate.

Eligible for entry are artists who knowingly work at the interfaces between art and creative industries, whose works blur boundaries of traditional forms of expression. Visual arts, Design, Urban art or Video – the artistic potential is not limited in this competition.

This year, a total of ten (10) prizes will be awarded and they include exhibition and mentoring opportunities, sponsorships, trips to different art festivals and huge media coverage — even before the finals.

All ten finalists will get the chance to exhibit their works during BLOOOM – the converging art show in Cologne, Germany in front of 35,000 visitors.

Since its beginning in 2010, BLOOOM Award by WARSTEINER emphasizes interdisciplinarity, power of innovation, courage and progressiveness. For the last edition, more than 1,500 artists applied from 75 countries.

The competition is funded by Warsteiner brewery with the intention to offers all young artists a chance to gain a foothold in the international art market.
