    Celeste Prize 2015 is an international contemporary arts prize which supports quality work by emerging artists in a worldwide, talent scouting environment. Every year thousands of artists use the prize to promote their works and their careers.

    This year the Prize has reached its 7th edition, confirming the validity of ideas at the heart of the prize, credibility, open selections and top curators.

    Works submitted to the prize must have been completed in the last 36 months, and do not necessarily have to have been exhibited before. There is no special subject, title or theme required for participating works, and they can range from being figurative to abstract, from conceptual to participatory to performance.

    A dynamic team of international curators and critics have been invited for their competence and the quality of their work in the field of contemporary art. Their selections are a guarantee to artists entering the prize, that their artwork will be judged impartially by top professionals. This year's team of international selectors is led by Koyo Kouoh, director of Raw Material Company, Dakkar.

    Entry fee is 50 Euro (approx. 53 USD) for a single work or 90 Euro (approx. 95 USD) for one project (up to 10 works).


    The competition is open to any person practicing art, either as a full-time or part-time professional or student, or as a self-taught artist from anywhere in the world. There is no age limit for applicants and the prize is open to all artists whatever their qualifications, with or without experience of public or private exhibitions.


    There will be a final exhibition of 40 works and 3 projects, a catalogue of circa 70 pages which will contain illustrations of finalists' works and critical texts, as well as 5 prizes:

    • Project Prize: 4,000 Euro (approx. 4,240 USD)
    • Painting & Drawings Prize: 4,000 Euro
    • Photography & Digital Graphics Prize: 4,000 Euro
    • Video & Animation Prize: 4,000 Euro
    • Installation, Sculpture & Performance Prize: 4,000 Euro

    The Awards night and exhibition of finalist works will be held in Zona Ventura, Milan, Italy, November 2015.
