The Discovery Award has been created with the aim to support and recognize the recent production of videos and films by international artists through a free open call to the artistic community. This LOOP Barcelona initiative is supported by Estrella Damm, who sponsors this prize, in line with its longtime support to the cultural sector. The exhibition featuring the finalist projects, included in the program of LOOP Barcelona every year, will be shown at the former Estrella Damm beer factory (Antigua Fábrica Estrella Damm), giving the audience the opportunity to enjoy the works in an exhibition format.
With the aim of fostering a space for the promotion of video art works, the Discovery Award has also created an online video channel, in which selected works from the second stage of the competition will be available for viewing and voting.
The Discovery Award encourages artists to participate and the public to enjoy the best international artistic creation.
