The NordArt-Prize worth 10.000 Euro is being sponsored by Hans-Julius and Johanna Ahlmann (ACO Group) since 2010. Each year one artist is awarded with the aim to support the art and culture scene. The awardee will be announced during „The Long Night of the Lights” in September and is invited to participate again in the following NordArt.
The award ceremony will then take place at the opening of the following NordArt.

Public Choice Award:
The visitors of the NordArt can vote for their favourite artist. The Public Choice Award will be awarded during “The Long Night of the Lights” on 21 September 2013. All votes will be counted in the week before the announcement. The three winning artists will be informed and invited to the price-giving ceremony. Each award is worth 1.000 Euro. The three winners are invited to participate again in next years NordArt.

Each year the exhibition is preceded by the international NordArt Symposium, bringing together different generations of artists to share experiences and make art – all reflecting the ethos of NordArt itself. Approximately 10 artists are invited to attend the symposium and create large works (sculpture, installation, painting) for the NordArt. The participants of the symposium are provided with materials (by agreement), a workplace, accommodation, food and travel cost support. The work created remains the property of the artist and will be exhibited at NordArt for at least 2 years – with the exception of works, which are sold.
If you wish to attend the symposium, please mark the “Symposium” box in the application form.
For this application we require a project description with details on the materials and dimensions, estimated time required, photos with examples of works.
