Art Prize for Central Eastern Europe and Central Asia
in 28 Countries

Henkel Art.Award. 2006 for Photography

Vienna, March 2006. For the fifth consecutive year,
Henkel Central Eastern Europe is announcing the Henkel
Art.Award., its annual art prize for the Central and
Eastern European and Central Asian region. This award
encompasses three key components of modern art
drawing, photography and design? which will
alternately serve as the main theme of the award every
three years. This year, the Henkel Art.Award. will be
granted again in the field of photography. Henkel
considers its art prize, endowed with the sum of 5,000
Euro, to be a contribution to the process of European
integration and to the cultural understanding of the
region. This is a topic which is of increasing
importance, thanks to the process of EU enlargement in
the CEE region. Promoting young, talented artists is
also one of Henkels priorities. For this reason,
Henkel is also granting a Youth Artists Prize endowed
with a monetary award of 1,500 Euro to the
participants of the Artists-in-Residence Program of
KulturKontakt Austria?. An additional attractive
feature of the Henkel Art.Award. is an exhibition of
the works of art created by the nominated finalists to
be held in Vienna in November 2006, as well as an
exhibition of the award winner held in his or her
homeland, with the support of Henkel CEE.

After the awards ceremony, previous winners of the
Henkel Art.Award. have gone on to be invited to
international exhibitions. For example, the works of
Dan Perjovschis were exhibited in Cologne, New York
and in a large exhibition organized by the Generali
Foundation in Vienna. Furthermore, the photographic
artist Vidmantas Ilciukas was the Lithuanian
representative at the large art project called
Compilation Europe?, which took place in Hainburg near
Vienna. 

KulturKontakt Austria has served as the long-term,
tried and tested partner of Henkel CEE for this
project. For the last ten years, it has been carrying
out artistic projects in Central, Eastern and
Southeastern Europe, and has also initiated an
artists-in-residence program for artists and
photographers from Central, Eastern and Southeastern
European countries. 

In cooperation with KulturKontakt Austria, Henkel CEE
invites artists from Central and Eastern Europe as
well as Central Asia to apply for the art prize and
the artists-in-residence program.
