In 2021, four projects or concepts will each be awarded a sum of 50,000 euros. The ongoing Corona pandemic continues to have a drastic impact on the culture sector. That is why our initiators have decided to once again distribute the prize money totaling 200,000 euros among four projects, in order to provide the winning projects with more sustainable and long-term financial security.
Since The Power of the Arts receives a large number of applications every year, the jury process consists of multiple stages. This process involves comprehensive review and assessment for each application. A pre-selection of projects will be proposed to the jury for the decision on the winners. The jury has the opportunity to review all of the applications submitted. Information about the jury members can be found on the website. The Power of the Arts’ jury includes prominent figures from arts and culture who themselves are representative of our heterogeneous society. The jury is appointed each year by the sponsor of the initiative The Power of the Arts. The jury’s composition is by no means static. While most of the current jury members have been with us since the first call for applications, changes can take place at any time. All jury members at The Power of the Arts are appointed based on their high degree of expertise and international recognition. We are happy to report how we have been able to have a jury every year which wields utmost professionalism and respect during the selection process and the discussion regarding awardees.

The Power of the Arts is an initiative from Philip Morris GmbH. Philip Morris GmbH provides the sponsorship money as well as the entire contest infrastructure. The content of the initiative is in no way connected with the company’s products.
Sponsorship for the initiative The Power of the Arts has a clear focus on social participation for all.
Philip Morris GmbH has had a long-standing tradition of engagement in social and cultural affairs. The company sponsors projects for the socially and physically disadvantaged, projects against domestic violence, projects for the advancement of women, for education, and for income-generating measures for young adults. Philip Morris GmbH has been well known since the 60s as a sponsor of large-scale collections, exhibitions, and artists. Since 2017, the company has been linking those two aspects via The Power of the Arts.
In addition, the company is also involved on the socio-political scene. Its study “How we really live” (Original title: “Wie wir wirklich leben”) investigates in partnership with the Rheingold Institute the German citizenry’s expectations on politics as well as how they want to be involved in political decision-making processes. The goal is to provide future-oriented common ground for constructive public discourse and new impulses against the growing societal division perceived today by many people.
