The prize

The ellipse Prize is an art competition established by ellipse art projects to highlight artistic creation on French territory focussing on a different country or culture in each edition.

The goal of this project is to support collective awareness about the surrounding environment using messages conveyed by artists.

Art is fundamental to deal with essential subjects. Improving access to culture for as many as possible is a means of sensibility and innovation awakening.

The ellipse Prize wants to help artists mobility to share their work and to upgrade their creative thinking with meetings with other like-minded creators from different cultures. It is crucial to support them in a more globalised world where economic and social disparities are growing.

Across this program, ellipse art projects is committed to facilitate an artist to gain access to international networks through an artistic residency and an exhibition in France every year.
