The Future Generation Art Prize was launched in 2009 by the Victor Pinchuk Foundation in Kiev, Ukraine. The competition is organised by the PinchukArtCentre.
It is the world’s largest and most democratic art prize open to young artists from any country working in any medium. Its aim is to help artists overcome limitations of gender, nationality, race and artistic medium by providing financial support and exposure, culminating in a show at the Venice Biennale 2017 for the winner.
All works of art, regardless of category or media are eligible for submission.
Applications are accepted via the internet until September 11, 2016 and will be judged by 300 art experts around the world.
The main Prize will be awarded by an international jury to one individual participant or collective of participants who will receive the amount of US$ 100,000. The Prize will be split into US$ 60,000 in cash and US$ 40,000 to invest in the production of new work.
An additional $20,000 will be allocated to fund artist-in-residency programs for the Special Prize winner.
An exhibition of the work of up to 20 shortlisted artists will be shown in Kiev at the PinchukArtCentre from February 2017 to April 2017. The winner will be announced at an Award Ceremony in Kiev in April 2017. The exhibition will go on show at the Venice Biennale in May 2017, presenting the work of all the shortlisted artists to a broad international public.
