This Award, established to encourage contemporary artistic creation, is aimed at artists of any age, nationality or gender that have established a solid trajectory but have not yet been given recognition by art institutions.One of the objectives pursued by the organisers of this new award is to establish networks on the five continents and raise the profile of art generated in countries considered “non-western”.
