Conceived by Shohidul Ahad-Choudhury, the founder of the ArteVue App, the ArtePrize is a non-profit prize, that has been designed to support young, emerging artists globally harnessing the power of technology. With a cash prize of US$15,000 and a highly coveted three month all-expenses paid artist residency with The Delfina Foundation in London, the prize has been designed to specifically help young artists.
Specifically aimed at global artists aged 18 to 30 who are not yet represented by an established gallery, submissions will be exclusively uploaded through the ArteVue App taking in 2-dimensional works on paper and canvas, photography and 3-dimensional sculpture valued up to US$25,000.
The ArtePrize encourages international artists to consider what technology means for art, and what art means for technology. Calling upon emerging creatives to submit a work that embodies their personal interpretation of the art world of the future, the ArtePrize asks entrants to consider the direction of our rapidly evolving art ecosystem, encouraging dialogue centred on the relationship between art and technology.
10 finalists will be interviewed by the judging panel, with the top 10 featuring in a stand-alone exhibition at The Delfina Foundation on Monday 20th November 2017, from which one overall winner will be selected on the opening night.
With very few restrictions, the Prize has been designed with the same mindset as the ArteVue App - something to provide access and a platform for the artists that need it the most.
