We wanted to create a place for artists to grow and share their work to each other. A happening that could really be a chance to measure and compare their own work with other artists from all around the world. A prize that could become an exhibition which awards the best among them. All of the above became this new idea that we want to launch, to empower independent artists from all around the world in a friendly and competitive environment where favoritism does not exist. Prisma Art Prize is a seasonal competition which becomes an annual group exhibition in Rome. Every artist can apply.


Every three months we will choose a winner among all the finalist works that will get a € 500 cash prize. We will award €2000 in cash prizes every year to the best artists that will take part in our award in seasonal competitions which take place every three months.


All the finalist works will be shown on our online gallery for the whole duration of our awards, together with infos and contacts of the artist. In this way you can get noticed by all the other participants and all of those who visit the site to buy the paintings.


The exhibition of the first year will take place in February 2021 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.


Once per year we will host a collective exhibition will all the works we find suitable for it. Some of the winning paintings and others selected by the art director, with the artist consent, will be exposed in a collective exhibition in Rome for two weeks, where we will invite collectors, gallery owners, art critics and passionate people about art.


Our team is at work every day to make sure that there are no pointless waiting times until your work is carefully examined by our jurors. We will answer in 48 hours max and tell you whether your work will be a finalist or not in our competition. If we select your work, it will be immediately put on our website and on our social networks.


Our partners will buy some of the paintings at the end of the annual call. You can set this option and the value of your painting when you submit. Moreover, our partners like Biafarin will offers their own prizes. Each year, our partners award more than € 2,000 in prizes for goods and services.




Submission will only take two minutes. There is no paperwork, no boring process. Just fill out the online entry form, pay with PayPal, Stripe or Credit Card and you’re set. You can submit up to eight artworks.
