The COAL Art & Environment Prize was launched in 2010 by the French association COAL, the coalition for art and sustainable development, to reward a project about the environment by a contemporary artist.
The winner is chosen by a jury of personalities from the worlds of contemporary art, research, ecology and sustainable development, out of 10 finalists selected from an international call for entries.
The COAL Prize 2011, worth 10 000 euros, comes under the auspices of the french Ministry of Culture and Communication, the National Centre of Fine Arts (CNAP), and enjoys the support of PwC and a private benefactor.
The call for entries opened on 1 December 2010.
The application period closes on 30 April 2011.
All proposals should be submitted on www.projetcoal.fr/upload/.
The prize will be awarded in May 2011.
