KP Prize DKK 10,000

Since 2012, the KP Prize has been given to an artist who has exhibited at this year's KP. This year, the responsibility for awarding the prize is entrusted to a jury consisting of

  • Jesper Rasmussen, visual artist and former rector at the Jutland Academy of Arts (Aarhus, DK)
  • Jan Skovgaard, visual artist
  • Pernille Lærke Andersen from KP's Board

KP Prize will be awarded on the opening day.

Audience Award DKK 10,000

Since 2012, the Audience Award has been given to an artist who has exhibited at either KP, SPRING or SOLO. It is the audience who has selected the award winner by voting.

The Audience Award has been awarded at the end of the exhibition period - usually at the finissage.

KP Prize and Audience Award are both donated by Aarhuus Stiftstidendes Foundation.

A professional recognition and a financial boost

Awarding the KP Prize and Audience Award is an initiative coming from KP's Board, and with support by Aarhuus Stiftstidende's Foundation has been made possible a long nurtured desire to upskill talent care in connection with KP.
Winning one of the prizes has meant a professional recognition and financial boost. For as everyone knows, it is the artist who, in principle, bears both expense and risk when creating art works.

 

KP Prize and Audience Award are donated by Aarhuus Stiftstidendes Foundation and awarded as travelgrants
