The main prize will be awarded by an international jury in the amount of US$ 100,000, split between $60,000 in cash and $40,000 investment in the production of a new work.

The pioneering Future Generation Art Prize established by the Victor Pinchuk Foundation in 2009 is a worldwide contemporary art prize created to discover, recognise and give long-term support to a future generation of artists. Judged by a distinguished jury, The Prize aims to make a major contribution to the careers of younger artists involved in the dynamic cultural development of societies in transition, many of whom have found it difficult to get their voices heard. The competition is open to all artists up to the age of 35 of all backgrounds, working in any medium, anywhere in the world.
