Each year the Prince Claus Fund gives 100 Seed Awards to artists and cultural practitioners who are in the first five years of their careers.

APPLY NOW2024 Seed Awards Call For Applications

With Seed Awards, we recognize emerging artists and provide initial support to the career development, creativity, and experimentation of cultural practitioners whose artistic work engages with pressing social and/or political issues within their own local context.

Prince Claus Seed Awards help emerging artists explore new perspectives and develop their practice on their own terms. Together with Mentorship and Impact Awards, their aim is to contribute to a world in which culture can exert its transformative power and lead to positive change.

The Open Call for Prince Claus Seed Awards is published once a year for artists/individuals from our working countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean and Eastern Europe. Applications are screened for eligibility by the Prince Claus Fund and judged by external advisors. Seed Award recipients are announced in December each year. Recipients are free to invest the Award of 5,000 euro as they choose in the development of their artistic practice.

Prince Claus Seed Awards were partially made possible by British Council and Ing Yoe Tan Fund.SEE ALL 100 SEED AWARDS RECIPIENTS HERE
