Artists in the finale of the €10 000 prize

The applications were evaluated in a two-tiered jury process. After the semifinal  from the shortlisted fifteen artists the main jury – Dr. Declan Long, Susanne Altmann and  Mark Rappolt – selected the finalists who will have the opportunity to show their works at the New Budapest Gallery.

The selection criteria of the award were determined by the founders and the jury evaulated the artists' portofolios, exhibition concept and the topicality of their work in an international context.
