The Juried Grand Prize

Since it was founded in 2009, ArtPrize has received attention for its controversial $200,000 top prize determined solely by public vote.

Then, in 2012, ArtPrize made the unexpected and equally controversial move to add a $100,000 Juried Grand Prize to the total purse. This award would be decided by a panel of three internationally regarded art experts. The move was a critical success, and ArtPrize offered the prize again in 2013.

In these short films, director Brian Kelly shares the story behind the ArtPrize Juried Grand Prize.
