Ö1 Talentestipendium (Talent Scholarship for Visual Arts)

For the sixth time, Wiener Städtische Versicherungsverein invited to the award of the Ö1 Talent Scholarship for Visual Arts.

The Ö1 Talentestipendium für bildene Kunst – endowed with 10,000 euros – went to Rosa Andraschek from Korneuburg. The Salzburg painter Marko Kodžić was chosen as the Ö1 Audience’s Favourite 2021. The award ceremony took place on the evening of 27 October at the Leopold Museum. “Through our cooperation with Ö1, we offer young artists the opportunity to engage even more intensively with their works. The Ö1 Talent Scholarship for Visual Arts is intended to form the basis of an undisturbed examination of one’s own work. In addition, together with the Leopold Museum, we are bringing young talents before the curtain: a selection of the works of five of this year’s nominees can be seen at the Leopold Museum,” explains Barbara Grötschnig, Head of VIG Group Sponsoring and Art Collections Wiener Städtische Versicherungsverein and Wiener Städtische Versicherung. Barbara Grötschnig is one of the members of the expert jury for the Ö1 Talentestipendium für bildende Kunst.

The Ö1 Talentestipendium is a unique art sponsorship project for students of Austrian art universities and was awarded for the fourteenth time this year.
