CELESTE PRIZE 2015



Celeste Prize is an international contemporary art prize open to all artists, photographers and creatives, without limits of age or experience. The Prize is open to the many and varied artistic practices which define today’s approaches. Crossover works in multiple media or time-based work are being accepted for submission. Thanks to Koyo Kouoh, this year’s chief-curator of Celeste Prize, the founding artistic director of RAW Material Company, Dakar and curator of 1:54 FORUM, London, the prize shows work which nurtures the common ground between artistic languages as well as giving artists an opportunity to investigate key issues which matter to the world.

According to last year chief-curator Ngone Fall "Celeste Prize gives great visibility to artist from different backgrounds and cultures because they can apply easily, and submit their works online by a simple clic."

The last day to pay the entry fee was 15th July 2015. But works can be uploaded till 22th July.
