Blooom Award by Warsteiner, Germany’s largest open international young artist award, is open to any discipline of artistic expression.
The competition is open to any discipline of artistic expression and to submissions from all around the world.
Five finalists are chosen to present their artworks in a special exhibition. Two of the finalists will be awarded additional prizes, such as personal mentoring.
The organizers are looking for artists who work at the interfaces between art and creative industries, whose works blur boundaries of traditional forms of expression.
Submitted artworks cannot be older than two years; they must have been created after 31 July 2017.
Five finalists are chosen to present their artworks in a special exhibition integrated into Art Düsseldorf, 15-17 November 2019. At Art Düsseldorf young and established galleries show post-war and contemporary art, which attracts over 40,000 visitors each year. Two of the finalists will be awarded additional prizes at an award ceremony during the special exhibition.
For one year, the winner of the first prize 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.
The winner will also receive a prize money of 1,500 Euro. The second place enjoys a one-day mentoring.
Funded by Warsteiner brewery, the competition has been 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.
