The national Young Artist of the Year event was initiated by the Junior Chamber of Commerce in 1984. The purpose of the selection of the artist and the exhibition process is to present young, talented artists and to pay attention to new Finnish art and its phenomena.
The Young Artist of the Year receives a grant of about 20 000 EUR and the opportunity to hold an exhibition at the Tampere Art Museum. The artist has to be under 35-years old.
The Young Artist of the Year event is organized by the City of Tampere and the Tampere Art Museum.
