About Promotion Prize of the Province of Styria for Contemporary Fine Art

A prize for contemporary art was first created in Styria in 1959: the so-called ‘Joanneum Art Prize’ was awarded up until 1967 to the major representatives of Styrian modernism. In 1968 this award was re-named the ‘Art Prize of the Province of Styria’ and from 1983, the ‘Promotion Prize for Contemporary Fine Arts’ with an age limit imposed on younger artists, until 1999, at which point it was lifted. Since then, all artists who were born in Styria and have their main residence here can take part.

A competition is held, at which to begin with an art expert with international experience curates an exhibition from all the works submitted. In a further phase of the competition, prizes and stipends are awarded from the positions represented in the exhibition.
