The Ariane de Rothschild art prize, dedicated to contemporary art, was established in 2003. The exhibition is held in Lisbon or Brussels. The award focuses on painting, but with works based on traditional forms of painting, the competition accepts works whose theme, technique or genre may include photography, sculpture and video. A jury selected the artists based on the originality of their works, their artistic merit and other criteria deemed relevant by the jury. The price is different from other competitions in that it is a non-monetary prize in the form of an all expenses paid 6 months artists-in-resident scholarship to the Slade School of Fine Arts in London.
