COAL Prize 2018: Inviting Artists throughout the World

Deadline: 31 July 2018

Applications are open for COAL Prize 2018 which is supported by the Ministry of Culture, the European Union and the Imagine 2020 network, the Museum of Hunting and Nature and the François Sommer Foundation.

The Coal Prize 2018 will be awarded in October in Paris, at a ceremony organized in partnership with the Museum of Hunting and Nature and the François Sommer Foundation, in the presence of the ten shortlisted artists and actors in the domains of art and sustainable development.

Prize Information

The winner of the COAL 2018 Prize will receive an award of 5,000 euros and a residency with additional financial support for artistic production at the Belval estate (Ardennes), property of the François Sommer Foundation.

Eligibility Criteria

  • The COAL Prize is open to artists throughout the world who dare to imagine and experiment, to transform territories, lifestyles, organisations, and production methods. Together, they are building a new collective narrative, a new vision, developing the future heritage, and in doing so creating the necessary optimistic framework for everyone to find the means and the motivation to implement the changes needed for a more sustainable and just world.
  • Applicants will be judged on the following criteria: artistic value, relevance (understanding of the theme), originality (the ability to introduce new approaches, themes, and points of view), pedagogy (ability to get a message across and raise awareness), social and participative approaches (engagement, testimony, efficiency, societal dynamics), eco-design and feasibility.
  • The COAL Prize supports art projects in progress. Its award is not intended to cover all production costs of the project but should be considered as an aid to its development.

How to Apply

  • The application should include the following documents in a single PDF file not exceeding 20 pages:
    • The completed application form, available for download on the given website.
    • A description of the proposed project, detailing its artistic dimension and its relevance to environmental issues;
    • Two high-definition visuals illustrating the project
    • A note on the technical aspects of the project, particularly in terms of construction and means of production;
    • An estimated budget
    • A Curriculum Vitae and a portfolio.
  • All proposals should be submitted via the COAL server given on the website.
