Talent Prize

The Talent Prize is a prize dedicated to contemporary art conceived and chaired by the publisher Guido Talarico and managed in collaboration with Inside Art, Italy’s first media company dedicated to communication on contemporary art and art advisory.

With around eight thousand registered artists aged between 18 and 40 years old, the award is now the reference event for emerging talent. A Jury* and partnerships of international standing ensure the quality and impartiality of the award and, above all, guarantee participants the certainty that their work will be assessed by the presidents and directors of some of Italy’s most prestigious contemporary art institutions.

An evaluation that is normally the arduous primary objective of any young artist. On the other hand, every year the jurors ensure that they can monitor all professional young artistic production, even that which sometimes escapes the official scouting circuits.

* Juror assignments refer to the year of presence in the Talent Prize jury.
