The Artaq Awards are coming back for a 3rd edition with a new selection of talents, a new book and new exhibitions and performances. Once again, young and former artists are participating to the Artaq Awards in order to present the evolution of the Urban Arts movement. They stuck naturally to one of the most important value of Urban Art : Dare to dare.
Dare to express ideas and show personality, dare to create a very own style; dare to explore new way of expression by using combination, hybridation and association of style, technique and support.

ARTAQ, THIRD EDITION

ARTAQ intends to encourage the most representative artists in Street Art and Urban Arts, helps them to promote their works and their reputation at the hands of art collectors, art professionals, galleries, press and large public.
Artaq honors each year artists who make Urban Arts evolve in all its categories and forms (tags, stencils, graffiti, wall painting, performances in situ, painting, digital art...).
With the aim of being the most respected selection in which artists want to be part of, the selection level and the jury's criteria are very high.
The aim is not to award points or elect a  'best artist of the year',but to present an overview of the artists who marked the year.

The ARTAQ selection is 10 Awards (ARTAQ AWARDS) and 1 Jury Special Prize
What win the laureates A publication of their works in the Artaq Bookzine
An exhibition in several cities (Paris or Brussels or Angers,...)
