Created in 2011, the Canson® Art School Awards have always sought to support art students in their progression towards an artistic career.

Remaining faithful to this vocation, the Canson® Art School Awards have gone a step further in this 7th edition, now offering art students an unprecedented prize and also taking a pan-European direction!


The Canson® Art School Awards in short

With the desire to provide opportunities for everyone and support young contemporary creators, Canson® is using the Canson® Art School Awards to offer talented young students the opportunity to take a first step in their art careers.

The Canson® Art School Awards are an artistic competition reserved solely for art students (in art schools or university art faculties). For each discipline, there will be 3 prizes awarded by a jury made up of professionals from the world of art as well as a Public Prize awarded via popular vote.

Registration is free and can be completed in several minutes at www.CansonArtSchoolAwards.com
