Prince Claus Seed Awards

Untitled design 1 2

Each year the Prince Claus Fund gives 100 Seed Awards to emerging artists and cultural practitioners who are in the first years of their careers. Through this, we support the career development of individuals whose artistic work engages with pressing social and/or political issues within their own local context. With the Prince Claus Seed Awards, we aim to contribute to flourishing arts scenes globally, where emerging artists can explore new perspectives and develop their practice on their own terms.  

Recipients are free to invest the Award in the development of their artistic practice. Through the Prince Claus Seed Awards, we support the career development, creativity, and experimentation of emerging artists and cultural practitioners around the globe. 

The Open Call for Prince Claus Seed Awards is open once a year to artists/individuals from our working countries who are in the first years of their careers. These award recipients are announced in December each year.
