BLOOOM Award by WARSTEINER 2017

BLOOOM Award by WARSTEINER, Germany’s biggest international competition for emerging artists, is now open for entries for 2017.

The competition funded by Warsteiner brewery is a steppingstone for emerging artists and offers young artists from all around the world the possibility to gain a foothold in the international art market via personal mentorings, exhibitions and travels to important art fairs in the whole world.

The organizers are looking for artists who knowingly work at the interfaces between art and creative industries, whose works blur boundaries of traditional forms of expression. The competition is completely open for any topic and artistic form of expression.

Since its beginning in 2010, BLOOOM Award by WARSTEINER emphasizes interdisciplinarity, power of innovation, courage and progressiveness. For the last edition, more than 2,000 artists applied from 84 countries. For the first time in 2017, a special prize for the category music video will be awarded.

For one year, the winner will be actively supported in his career: As part of a one-year mentoring by one of the jury members, the winner defines goals with the mentor to boost his career. Next steps are planned together and the winner benefits from the contacts and experience of his mentor. Additionally, the first place receives a travel to Art Basel in Miami or Hong Kong including 1,500 Euro pocket money. The second place gets the chance to exhibit in a selected gallery and a travel to Art Paris and the winner of the third place enjoys a one-day mentoring. All ten finalists get the chance to exhibit their works during BLOOOM – the one artist show, that counted 37,000 visitors last year.
