Who decides on the award?

The decision to award the scholarship is made by an independent jury of experts selected by the City of Innsbruck's Department of Culture.

The drei members of the jury change every two years. Where possible, the jury is made up of artists as well as representatives from the fields of art criticism, municipal administration and architecture. The decision on the awarding of the scholarship is made in a closed jury meeting.

How does the jury process work?

The jury procedure is a two-stage process. In the first stage, the jury selects five artists from all complete and valid applications. These artists must then prepare a sketch for the selected wall and submit it within four weeks by a deadline set by the jury. In the second stage, the jury will select the winning project from the sketches submitted. The unrealized sketches will be remunerated with 200 euros. Any additional financial outlay will not be compensated.

All applicants will be informed after the non-public jury meeting.
