Luxembourg Art Prize 2020


Deadline: 30 April 2020

The Luxembourg Art Prize aims to reveal and promote talented artists who have yet to establish a profile on the contemporary international scene. Its function is to discover artists, and it is open to any artist, amateur or professional, with no limits on age, nationality or place of residence. The Prize is aimed at artists working in one or more of the following media: drawing, printing, installation, painting, performance, photography, digital art, sculpture, sound art, video, mixed media, decorative art (textiles and material, glass, wood, metal, ceramics, mosaic, paper or other techniques).


What are the submission criteria?

  • No age limit on submissions
  • Open to amateur and professional artists
  • All nationalities are eligible
  • Open to artists from all the countries of the world


How do I enter?

Artists have to create a Candidate Space on the Luxembourg Art Prize website and complete the entry form on-line. Everything takes place via the Luxembourg Art Prize website. Only entries submitted on-line via the artist’s personal Candidate Space will be accepted. Candidates may update and complete their submissions on-line as many times as necessary until the deadline for submissions.


What is the deadline for submitting entries?

Candidate applications must be completed online in the Candidate Space by April 30 at midnight.


The application, which is filled in completely online via the Candidate Space, must include the following information:
  • An administrative profile that contains personal information such as the candidate’s name and surname, their mailing address, their email address, their phone number and their photo
  • An artistic profile that details, in particular, the candidate’s artistic approach and biographical elements, as well as sources of inspiration
  • A selection of one or more works, not necessarily in the same medium, with a good-quality image of each work to enable the selection committee to form as accurate an idea as possible of the candidate’s practice.

Candidates working exclusively in the medium of video are advised to provide a link to a video hosting site such as Vimeo or YouTube or to their own site where the video can be viewed.

The entry may be written in the candidate’s first language if this is easier.


Entry fee

Entry for the Luxembourg Art Prize 2020 is subject to the payment of an entry fee to be paid on-line. The entry fee is €55 (about US$62 GBP47 CHF62 CA$83 JPY6,900).

The Pinacothèque does not have the necessary computer resources to manage the secure online submission of applications. The museum subcontracts this part of the process to an IT company that specializes in such things. By providing its expertise and know-how, the subcontractor ensures the smooth running of the Luxembourg Art Prize. The registration fee is paid in full to the subcontractor for the service rendered. VAT (Value Added Tax) may apply, depending on the country of the candidate.
