Taking the leap forward to become the continent’s leading award for media artists, the VH Award supports young talent around the world, serving as a launching point for these artists to achieve their international goals.

In addition, selected artists will also be invited to participate in the online residency programs led by the networked artists and curators at Eyebeam, the prominent not-for-profit art and technology center based in New York City
The final Grand Prix will be announced during an award ceremony in October 2021 with the grant of an additional $25,000 (USD), and all the awarded works will be exhibited on various global platforms.
