The world's only International Prize for Live Art

 The ANTI Festival International Prize for Live Art was awarded for the first time in Kuopio during ANTI - Contemporary Art Festival 2014, on 24th September. In December 2014, ANTI announced the continuation of the Prize. The future of the Prize is secured with the Saastamoinen Foundation, which generously supports it. The Shortlist LIVE! concept has been made possible by the support of The Kone Foundation.

The world's only International Prize for Live Art is 30,000 euros, making it one of the richest cultural prizes in the arts. The winning artist receives a cash prize of 15,000 euros and the same amount in the form of a production grant for bringing a new work to the ANTI Festival in the following year. 


Previous winners are 2014 Cassils (Canada/USA), 2015 Willoh S. Weiland (Australia), 2016 Terike Haapoja (Finland), 2017 Tania El Khoury (Lebanon) and 2018 Sonya Lindfors (Finland).
