State prizes

State prizes are awarded annually by the national arts councils. State prizes can be awarded to an artist or a group of two or more artists in recognition of a work or performance in a specific artform that has been completed within the last three years and is of especially high artistic merit.

State prizes can also be awarded to artists for their long-term valuable work for the benefit of a specific artform. In addition, state prizes can be awarded to art associations or other communities.
