How the Competition Works

The Lumen Prize is open to artists anywhere in the world. All entries are reviewed by Lumen’s International Selection Committee which is made up of academics, gallerists, artists and art historians from around the world. The top 100 works chosen by the ISC become the Lumen Online Gallery which is opened for a public vote for the People’s Choice Award in September.

The top 100 works are then reviewed by the Lumen Jury Panel who choose the top 25 works that form the 2014 Lumen Prize Exhibition and the 2014 Lumen Prize winners. The Founder’s prize is selected by Lumen’s Founder, Carla Rapoport.

1 entry fee costs US$40 and allows the submission of 2 works. A percentage of each entry fee goes to our partner charity Peace Direct
