The Essl Art Award CEE 2013 gives international visibility to up-to-the-minute tendencies in the young European art scene. After the call for applications at the art academies of Bulgaria, Croatia, Romania, the Slovak and Czech Republics, Hungary and, for the first time, Istanbul, Turkey, the fifth Essl Art Award CEE received applications from more than 500 art students who aspired to a place in the so-called “Nominees’ Exhibitions” and wanted to win this coveted young-talent award.
From the more than 500 applications, the jury, consisting of experts from the participating countries and Austria, shortlisted 10 nominees per country whose work will now be presented in the “Nominees’ Exhibitions” scheduled for May 2013 in all participating countries.
