The award, which was launched in 2013, is unique in its approach in that it works on an anonymous submission basis, where previous education and exhibition history are irrelevant. This year’s nominees include Martin John Callanan, Regina de Miguel, Stine Marie Jacobsen, Lindsay Lawson, Lotte Meret, Benedikt Partenheimer, Aurora Sander, Raul Walch, Lauryn Youden.
Different from other years, the award ceremony will take place on the closing night on December 10. The winner is chosen by a jury of five, and this year it includes art critics Karen Archey and Kito Nedo, and artists Emeka Ogboh, Ahmet Öğüt and Susanne M. Winterling.
