This yearArtproof, a service-oriented fine art laboratory working with artists to realise their vision in print, have chosen CHART to host the Artproof Award 2019. CHART is proud to facilitate the award, which is dedicated to emerging artists working in photography, and to support this medium as part of our 2019 edition.
‘The cooperation between CHART and Artproof was born out of shared passion in giving more visibility to Nordic artists working with the medium of photography. Artproof Award has been given out 17 times and to six different countries since 2012. The driving force behind the award is the commitment of giving back to the community by providing talented young artists with a possibility to realise their ideas and vision, with [the] best possible form and shape.’
