Prisma Art Prize is an art contest born to promote emerging painters and visual artists. As our name and logo suggests, we want to be a prism that refracts all the possible outcomes of the painting process.

What we want is to answer a fundamental question in the current artistic context: what does painting mean today? At the base of our project, there is the constant and inclusive research and enhancement of artists from different cultural and educational backgrounds.
Prisma Art Prize is open to everyone, regardless of age, nationality, or gender.


Each of the four seasonal Call for Artists gives the chance to win the first prize in cash worth € 500, interviews from partner magazines, and other prizes offered by sponsors Viviva Colors and Biafarin. Every year there is the opportunity to be selected for the group exhibition in Rome and to be published in the catalog. One artist under 35 will have the opportunity to exhibit in an exhibition in our partner gallery.

All the works selected for each Call will remain on display in our online gallery (website and social profiles), a space that we take care of for the participants and the public of art lovers.


The exhibition of the first year will take place from 10 to 24 February 2022 at the Atelier Montez, a contemporary art factory born in 2012 from the redevelopment of an urban wreck between the Natural Reserve of the Aniene and the historical outskirts of Rome, Pietralata, built on a project by the Artist Gio Montez, Giacomo Capogrossi and the architect Francesco Perri.



Winners will be published on June 1st.
