The Glocal Rookie of the Year

The international art prize, "The Glocal Rookie of the Year", has been created by the Südtiroler Sparkasse Trust and "kunStart" to support up-and-coming artists in their careers and to underpin Bolzano"ôs reputation as a centre of culture.  Prizes are still important milestones in the life of an artist. They increase prestige and highlight potential for lasting greatness. They represent a stepping stone on the way to the top, particularly for ambitious young artists.  The accolade "Glocal Rookie of the Year", to be awarded annually, invites participants to demonstrate their engagement with the concepts of "local" and "global" in an original, creative and novel way. The works submitted will be examined by a jury of seven leading lights from the world of art and culture directly within the framework of "kunStart", where they will be uniformly displayed, with artist and associated gallery captions, in a specially dedicated area. In this way, the competition will become a further incentive for the still young but very promising art fair "kunStart" to concentrate more intensively on contemporary art.
