The AAF/Seebacher Prize for Fine Arts

Each year, The AAF/Seebacher Prize for Fine Arts (formerly The Daisy Soros Prize and The Hayward Prize) offers US fine arts graduate students, or those who have completed their graduate studies within the past two years, the opportunity to study at the International Summer Academy of Fine Arts Salzburg in Austria. Founded in 1953 by world-famous painter Oskar Kokoschka, the International Summer Academy offers an unrivalled environment, with work sites at the Hohensalzburg Fortress and the Old Salt Factory on Perner Insel (Island) on the Salzach River.  This particular international experience gives young artists not only the opportunity to study with well-known and respected international artists from around the world, but also the chance to immerse themselves in a program that is both rich in cultural tradition and academically challenging. Please visit their website for additional information on the Academy and its programs.  Questions may be emailed to the AAF at:
The postmark deadline for applications is: April 20, 2015.
