    Celeste Prize 2016 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 it has reached its 8th edition, confirming the validity of ideas at its heart: 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 Ellen Blumenstein, director of KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin.

    Entry fee is 50 Euro (approx. 53 USD) for a single work, 90 Euro (approx. 95 USD) for one project (up to 10 works) or 30 Euro (approx. 33 USD) for one work for under-26 years old in the Super-Young category.


    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 53 works and 3 projects, a catalogue of circa 80 pages which will contain illustrations of finalists' works and critical texts, as well as six prizes:

    • Project Prize: 4,000 Euro (approx. 4,470 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
    • Super-Young Prize: 3,000 Euro

    The Awards night and exhibition of finalist works will be held in Bargehouse OXO Tower, London (UK).
