Celeste Prize 2014 is an international contemporary arts prize which supports quality work by emerging artists in a worldwide, talent scouting environment. Every year thousands of artists use the prize to promote their works and their careers.
They have reached the 6th edition this year, confirming the validity of ideas at the heart of the prize, credibility, open selections and top curators.
Celeste Prize 2014 is supported by Celeste Network, a 57,000 member social network for contemporary arts, which includes gallerists, curators, critics, art organizers, collectors and many artists. Celeste Network is a fertile environment in which to promote artwork, make contact and start up art projects around the world. You can also just sign up and have your free page, then decide later if you wish to join the prize.
Works submitted to the prize must have been completed in the last 36 months, and do not necessarily have to have been exhibited before. There is no special subject, title or theme required for participating works, and they can range from being figurative to abstract, from conceptual to participatory to performance.
A dynamic team of international curators and critics have been invited for their competence and the quality of their work in the field of contemporary art. Their selections are a guarantee to artists entering the prize, that their artwork will be judged impartially by top professionals. This year's team of international selectors is led by Elena Sorokina, independent curator based in Paris, France.
Entry fee payable online is 50 Euro (approx. 64 USD) per work.
The competition is open to any person practicing art either as a professional artist in full-time or part-time, student artist or self-taught artist from anywhere in the world. There is no age limit for applicants and the prize is open to all artists whatever their qualifications, with or without experience of public or private exhibitions.
