The fifth annual Ladislav Sutnar Prize goes to outstanding artists, pedagogues and institutions, which have influenced significantly the world of art and design.
Teendesign is an annual international art and design competition for secondary school students (age 15+). The main objective of the competition is to search for new talents, to support young talented students in their creative activities and encourage them to pursue their studies at art universities. The competition has been open to international students since 2012.
The Teendesign competition helps young artists to show and prove their talent and it gives them a chance to win free tuition or discounts on courses of ArtCamp, the international summer school of art held at the Ladislav Sutnar Faculty of Design and Art in Pilsen – the European Capital of Culture 2015. This way they can spend a part of their summer holidays in a creative and international environment and develop their talent in courses led by renowned Czech and international artists.
