The Countdown Is On. . . 2017 BLOOOM Award by Warsteiner
Ten finalists, ten remarkable works of art, one tough decision ahead! The 8th edition of the annual BLOOOM Award by Warsteiner, Germany’s largest open international art competition, just entered its final phase following the jury’s announcement of the ten finalists. Now all eyes are on these ten young artists from around the world to see who will be the 2017 winner of this prestigious award. And it’s not an easy choice!
The 2017 Annual BLOOOM Award by Warsteiner drew more than 2,300 entries from over 90 countries. From breath-taking and mind-boggling to astonishing and simply awesome – young emerging artists submitted their creations for consideration.
Since its inception, the BLOOOM Award by Warsteiner has provided lasting support of the arts by presenting promising artists to a wider forum – a commitment that is also reflected in its prizes: First prize includes a trip to Art Basel Miami Beach or Art Basel Hong Kong as well as mentoring support for a year, while the runner-up will enjoy an art trip to Paris and their own exhibit in a well-known gallery.
Third place consists of a one-day mentoring session with an art expert. This invaluable exposure to art collectors, gallerists and the art-loving public offers these young creative minds a stepping stone into the highly competitive art market.
All ten finalists will be showcased in a special exhibit during the ART DÜSSELDORF held from November 17–19 at the Areal Böhler. The spotlight will be on the three winners during a highly anticipated award ceremony at the opening of the show on November 17. This year will also see a special prize dedicated to the award’s newest category: music videos.
