Celeste Prize is an annual, international contemporary arts prize, open to all artists without limits of age, sex or profession. In 2010 there are 40,000 € awards in five prize categories: Painting (8,000 €); Photography & Digital Graphics (8,000 €); Video & Animation (8,000 €); Installation, Sculpture & Performance (8,000 €); and Live Media (8,000 €). The prize is particularly attractive to artists because the 50 finalist artists themselves vote the prize money according to the majority principle (who receives most votes wins the prizes). In 2009, nearly 1,500 artists worldwide presented a work to the prize.
