We will not accept any late applications.

Tip: don’t wait until the last day to complete your application! Every year, some candidates scramble to meet the deadline. There will be absolutely no exceptions, not even for last-minute technical issues!

What should the entry contain?

Your application file must be completed online in your candidate space.

You will not be required to provide personal information unless such information is useful to your application.

The application file is standardized to ensure all applications are treated equally. It contains the following elements:

  • An administrative profile comprised of basic information.
  • An artistic profile made up of biographical information as well as your artistic approach and inspirations.
  • One or more works made using the same or different techniques, created at any time, and addressing any theme. Works that have already been exhibited (online or in a museum) or that are already known to the public are acceptable.

All the content in your application file remains private and confidential. You remain the sole owner of the copyrights associated with the photos and information in your application.

Your application file can be completed in any of the 39 languages accepted by the museum. You will find a list of these languages in your account (artistic profile).

Never send anything to the museum by regular mail (letters, catalogs, books, artwork, etc.). The online application files, which are standardized for the sake of fairness, serve as the basis for all decisions made by the museum and the independent jury.

Entry fee

Participation in the Luxembourg Art Prize is contingent upon the payment of a registration fee to be settled online. The amount to pay is displayed in the applicant space and may vary depending on the currency used and the applicant’s country of residence.

The registration fee is used entirely to pay for the services of the IT company which ensures the proper function of the website and manages the electronic submission of application files. Please note that The Pinacothèque, which organizes the Luxembourg Art Prize, is a not-for-profit cultural and educational museum and does not receive any money from the applicants.

Your career launched at last!

The 1st place winner of the Luxembourg Art Prize receives €50,000, the 2nd place winner €20,000, and the 3rd place winner €10,000. The laureates can use this money however they please.​

All artists (finalists or otherwise) will receive an official certificate from the museum in acknowledgment of their artistic achievements. This certificate can be issued in 9 different languages, providing the artists with international prestige and recognition.

The Luxembourg Art Prize is a unique opportunity for you to penetrate the international, professional art circuit and to finally be seen by major private and institutional collectors.

Unlike other art awards and shows, the Luxembourg Art Prize is arranged by a top-tier private European museum. Your career will take on an international dimension and your artistic output will have a fair shot at rapidly gaining consideration as essential in the international art market.

How does the Artistic Committee make its choice?

The Artistic Committee is already looking forwarding to getting to know your work and examining your entry carefully. They expect you to fulfil certain criteria, which may appear subjective but are nevertheless important.

For example, the Committee may be sensitive to the following points: the originality of the work, technical mastery, coherence of the work, freshness, novelty, historical continuity, the artistic, literary, historical, scientific or philosophical references in your work, the message conveyed, the poetry that emerges from the work.

The Committee hopes to find works that have been produced in a unique moment of grace experienced by the artist at the time of their creation. These magical creative moments are what make a work unique and unlike any other.
