New edition of the

Luxembourg Art Prize

open until midnight on

August 31, 2020

The Luxembourg Art Prize is an annual international prize organized by the Pinacotheque, a private, non-profit museum located in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. Every year the Prize aims to discover talents, amateur or professional, regardless of age and nationality. 

Since it was created in 2015, this contest aims to launch or boost the careers of artists who have yet to be recognized at the international level by enabling them to show their work at a European museum as part of a group exhibition of the finalists. The Luxembourg Art Prize also gives the artists a sound museum reference to add to their curriculum vitae.

The winner receives significant help in the form of a grant of €50'000 (about US$54,000 GBP45,000 CHF53,000 CA$76,000 JPY6,000,000). The winner is entirely free to use this money in any way they choose.

Finalists are not required to travel to Luxembourg. If you are absent, the director of the museum will serve as their representative and the museum will send them a finalist’s certificate and/or winner’s certificate by Fedex.

All the finalist artists’ expenses are paid by the organisation during the group exhibition (transport for the works of art, air and train tickets and full-board accommodation in a five-star hotel). The same is true for the costs of the person of their choice who may travel with them to the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.

The Prize is aimed at artists working in one or more of the following media: drawing, printing, installation, painting, photography, sculpture, mixed media, decorative art (textiles and material, glass, wood, metal, ceramics, mosaic, paper or other techniques).

New from the 2020 edition

In recognition of the fact that completing the application file is an important and sometimes difficult step, the museum would like to reward artists who make the effort. Therefore, all artists who completed their application file will receive a certificate from the Luxembourg Art Prize issued by the museum.
