As a collaborative initiative of the Leopold Bloom Foundation and the Pepper Art Projects, one of the most prestigious contemporary art awards is being presented for the third time in Hungary.

The exhibition of works by the finalists and the presentation of the award itself will be hosted by the New Budapest Gallery.

The goal of the Leopold Bloom Art Award is to strengthen the international presence of contemporary art from Hungary. The award, which amounts to 10,000 Euros, is available to the winner to cover expenses such as renting a studio abroad, organizing an exhibition abroad, or defraying any other costs related to an exhibition abroad.

A record number of applications were submitted (nearly 120), from which a three-person international pre-jury (Catalina Lozano, Maija Rudovska, Barbara Sirieix) selected 15 artists for the semi-final.

Following the pre-jury, members of the main jury – Dr. Declan Long, Susanne Altmann and Mark Rappolt – selected six artists who, together with the two previous recipients of the Leopold Bloom Art Award, will participate in the exhibition organized at the New Budapest Gallery.
