Established by the Austrian art collectors Agnes and Karlheinz Essl and conferred in close co-operation with experts, museums and art academies, this award is dedicated to the discovery and support of talented art students in Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, Slovenia and Slovakia and also for the first time in Turkey. The award reflects the commitment of the Essl family to the support of young art and provides a significant stimulus to the European cultural sphere. Thus one main goal of the ESSL ART AWARD is to offer a broad and multi-layered insight into the young art scene of Central and South-Eastern Europe. Initiated in 2005, the award is conferred every two years and bestowed for the fifth time in 2013.
