The winner of the first prize will be entitled to the acquisition of the work in competition, which will therefore be added to the amount of € 15,000, thus becoming part of the VAF Foundation Collection.

New in this edition will also be the exhibition display: alongside the works of the young artists, a selection of works of Masters belonging to the VAF Stiftung Collection will be exhibited. For the 2022 edition, some works by Paolo Baratella from the VAF Stiftung Collection will be showed and the artist will receive a career award.

On the occasion of the exhibition, a catalog will be published, in a bilingual German and Italian edition, published by Manfredi Edizioni.
