The aim of the Prize

“The aim of the Share Prize is to discover, promote and support contemporary art in our global and digital age.”

The competition is open to all artists that explore issues concerning our society today, in which globalisation and the pervasive reach of technology and new media have become the object of artistic interest, against a backdrop of continuing, non-stop change.

The Share Prize was launched in 2007 as a cornerstone of the Share Festival, held in Torino-Italy.

The cultural intent of the Share Prize is to make the Share Festival open and accessible to all artists.

A jury of experts is tasked each year with short-listing six finalist works and selecting the winner.
