The Théodore Strawinsky Prize
Théodore Strawinsky had expressed the wish to help young artists broaden their cultural education. To honour his memory, his widow fulfilled that wish after his death.
The Théodore Strawinsky prize was awarded for the first time on 25th June 1992. It was designed as an annual reward to be granted to the Painting graduate from the Haute Ecole d'Art et de Design (HEAD) in Geneva who wins their in-house competition. The prize is awarded at the school’s graduation ceremony.
The prize is currently CHF 10,000.
Candidates should submit a personal file together with at least two works on a two-dimensional support. More details can be found in the Prize Settlement (in French).
The jury is made up of 2 members of the Board of Trustees, an independent artist designated by the Board of Trustees, an independent artist outside the HEAD but nominated by it, and the previous year’s winner.
The jury designates the winner.
