Allegro Prize has given publicity to artists from around the world.
The jury consisting of names such as Anda Rottenberg, Monika Brodka and Jakub Julian Ziółkowski identified new talents and made it possible for those artists to present their art before a large audience. 3 winners were chosen and 10 distinctions awarded. The total value of awards was PLN 50 thousand.
Allegro and Contemporary Lynx, an international, independent magazine dedicated to arts, joined forces to support and promote visual arts. The collaboration is not a coincidence; since 2018, Allegro has also been developing a special “Collectors Zone” (Strefa Kolekcjonera) presenting contemporary art pieces and antiques. The goal behind the collaboration between Allegro and Contemporary Lynx was to support and promote artists all over the world. The competition made it possible to discover and financially support the most talented artists. Importantly, all fees for participation in Allegro Prize have been suspended taking into account the difficult circumstances that the pandemic has put so many artists in.
The competition was addressed to visual arts creators representing all disciplines who are students or graduates of academies of fine arts or art schools, without any age or geographic restrictions.
