Call-for-Artists DEW21 Art Award 2020

Whether photography, installations, video contributions, sound sculptures, painting or sculpture - the DEW21 Art Prize demonstrates every year anew how much creative potential there is in the Ruhr area. 

For 15 years now, DEW21 has been offering visual artists from the Ruhr Area the opportunity to present their work to a broad public and thus to attract attention. Not least because of the great variety and quality of the works submitted, the DEW21 Art Award has now established itself as a permanent fixture in the art scene.

The main prize is endowed with a total of 10,000 euros. It consists of 2,500 euros prize money and 7,500 euros for a solo exhibition with catalogue. In order to give special support to young creative talent, a sponsorship prize for young artists up to and including the age of 30 has been awarded since 2012. This prize is endowed with 2,500 euros.
