Julia Gryboś and Barbora Zentková received the award at a ceremony at the SNP Museum in Banská Bystrica on November 20. The international jury (Lily Hall-UK; Maxime Rossi-France; Barnabás Bencsik-Hungary; Dušan Barok-The Netherlands; and Peter Tajkov-Slovakia) also considered work by finalists Daniela Krajčová, Lucia Luptáková and Juraj Gábor.

The work of the two winners was appraised by the jury for their inter-media approach and collaborative practice.

The nominations were not public, but rather submitted by a jury of local artists, gallerists and curators - Ilona Németh, Lenka Kukurová, Lucia Gregorová Stach, Natália Tomeková and Christian Potiron.

During the ceremony a special prize for social engagement was given to artist Peter Kalmus.

An exhibition presenting the work by the finalists, organised in Slovakia by the Nadácia – Centrum súčasného umenia / Foundation – Centre of Contemporary Art, will be shown in the Central-Slovak Gallery in Praetorium, Š. Moysesa Square 25 in Banská Bystrica until December 4.
