ZF Kunststiftung

In 2008 the ZF Art Foundation changed the award procedure for the artist in residence program from public tender to a system with nominations made by experts:

The award process for the scholarship consists of two stages: Six external, independent art experts from Austria, Germany, and Switzerland nominate artists who can apply for the scholarship.

In a second step a jury of six judges chooses the artist to receive the scholarship. The nominated experts are not part of the jury and change every two years.
