The TFHMF Award 2014 is a brand new crowd funded award created by the
renowned Dutch and Finnish art foundations Tupajumi and
HeavyMerryFinland. The main objective by both organizations is to
promote (inter)national artists worldwide at key locations within local
art scenes.

This year Tupajumi and HeavyMerryFinland present five top artists in a
group exhibition at the popular Swedish Supermarket art fair selected by
an international jury of critics, art professionals, and colleague
artists. One of them will win the TFHMF Award, including prize money
raised by the visitors of the art fair.

The TFHMF Award 2014 is an international award for the very best in
contemporary art. If you want to be presented by Tupajumi and
HeavyMerryFinland at the Swedish Supermarket art fair and win the award,
you can enter 1-3 artworks for the jury to select.

All works submitted will be displayed on our website.

Out of all the artworks entered a long-list will be made which consist
out of 25 artworks. This long-list will be on view via a video loop in
our booth at the art fair. The professional jury will further narrow
down the long-list in to a selection of 5 finalists, which will be
physically on display at the Supermarket art fair.

Visitors of the art fair will now play a pivotal role in determining who
the actual winner will be. They will be asked to cast a vote on their
favourite artwork (with a minimum of EUR1 per vote). They decide who the
lucky winner will be and they contribute to the prize money. We of
course will do our utmost to get as many votes as possible.

The competition is open for all artists. The criteria for entering is
that the artwork should be original, contemporary and challenging. With
many people from the professional art scene viewing our website and
visiting our stand at the Supermarket art fair, we invite you to send in
your best artworks.

The highly regarded art fair will be held at the Kulturhuset in
Stockholm, Sweden from February 14-16, 2014. Close to a hundred
international artist run galleries and initiatives present their
organizations and their affiliated artists to thousands of visitors.


Both the jury members and the two organizing parties will have a chance
to see your artwork and resumé (CV) and might select you to participate
for future projects. Consider it curatorial speed dating.
