Open Call: Szpilman Award 2013


The Szpilman Award is awarded to works that exist only for a moment or a short period of time.
The purpose of the award is to promote such works whose forms consist of ephemeral situations.


The prize winner receives the Jackpot Stipendium.
This scholarship consists of three parts:

A challenge cup,
10 days of accommodation in Cimochowizna (Poland), and 
a sum of money in cash.

The amount of money is dynamic. SZPILMAN is raising money parallel to
the competition. The prize winner receives the money that is raised
until September 30, 2013. 

Among the applicants, one award winner will be identified.

The challenge cup will be handed over to the next prize winner
in the subsequent year.
