100 Prince Claus Seed Awards Recipients Announced

We are excited to announce 100 Prince Claus Seed Awards recipients - inspiring new artists and cultural practitioners whose work addresses pressing issues in their local communities.

For culture to thrive, new artists need a chance to break through barriers, experiment, find their path, and gain momentum. We are proud to announce a selection of future trendsetters, a hundred artists to follow! 

The Prince Claus Seed Awards recipients were selected from over 1,500 applicants. This year’s recipients come from more than 70 countries, extending from Latin America and the Caribbean to Africa, Asia and Eastern Europe. Their work covers a wide range of disciplines and addresses a diversity of social concerns, from gender equality, racial justice and indigenous rights to freedom of expression and the impacts of climate change.

The three categories of Prince Claus Awards: Seed, Mentorship and Impact Awards are designed to support artists and cultural practitioners in different ways at crucial stages in their professional careers. Prince Claus Seed Awards offer an early career boost that can make a difference in the long run. The Fund facilitates beneficial connections and exchanges for recipients and they are free to use the 5,000 euro Award at their own discretion to further their practice.

Prince Claus Seed Awards were made partially possible by the British Council and the Ing Yoe Tan Fund.
