The works selected for the competition must be of a high standard, both technically and aesthetically, as well as innovative.

There are two prizes: €3,500 awarded by the Ministry of Culture of the Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles and €3,500 awarded by WCC-Europe.

The deadline for applicaations is 14 January 2024.

The award ceremony takes place on 23 November 2024, with the exhibition open from 24 November 2024 to 16 February 2025.
