The Cultural Foundation generally awards two work year stipends of up to 40 000 CHF (32 000 EUR) annually. The work year abroad affords talented young artists the opportunity for pivotal further development.
Since 2006, Liechtenstein has also maintained at the disposal of professional artists a studio with living quarters in Berlin, where stipend recipients can work and live for either three or six months.
In 2006, the government presented an award of recognition for an artist’s life work for the first time.
In 2010, the “young culture Liechtenstein” competition was organised for the first time. The competition is a promotional prize for emerging artists up to the age of 40. The prize in the amount of CHF 10 000 (7 244 EUR) is used to realise an innovative project. The first competition was carried out under the theme of “My Country”.
