Artist Professors

Particularly distinguished artists may be awarded ten-year grants and the right to use the title of Artist Professor. Some Artist Professor grants are awarded for five year periods.

Previously, artist professors were appointed for five-year terms by the Arts Council of Finland, the predecessor of the Arts Promotion Centre Finland. At any one time there could be up to 10 artist professors, who represent particularly gifted and creative artists. In 2010 Parliament took the decision to replace the positions of artist professors with artist grants. This change was implemented gradually as the current terms came to an end. Recipients of 10-year grants may still use the title of Artist Professor.
