Application deadline: 20 July, midnight.
The COAL Prize, created in 2010 by the COAL Art and Ecology Association, invites submissions from artists working on environmental issues in the field of visual arts.
The COAL Prize is open to artists from all over the world who deploy their creativity to devise and experiment with solutions and bear witness to the transformation of territories, lifestyles, organizations, and means of production, while making a contribution to the process themselves.
One artist is awarded the COAL Prize by a jury of personalities from the domains of art and ecology. In addition, all the applications considered by COAL and the selection committee make it possible to make known artists and projects that can be solicited or promoted according to the other opportunities and actions carried out by the association.
The prize-winner receives an award of €5,000 and is invited for a residency including an additional aid in production at Domaine de Belval (Ardennes – France) by the François Sommer Foundation.
