October 5, 2018 GMT

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) — The winners of the 10th international ArtPrize competition are set to be announced during an awards ceremony in western Michigan.

This year’s ArtPrize started last month and features the work of artists from around the world at more than 160 venues vying for $500,000 in cash prizes. More than 1,260 artworks are on display. Awards include $200,000 for the public favorite and $200,000 for a winner picked by an expert jury.


After an earlier round of voting, the votes of ArtPrize visitors selected 20 finalists to go along with 20 picks from jurors. An awards ceremony takes place Friday night in Grand Rapids before ArtPrize wraps up Sunday.

Following this year, organizers plan to hold ArtPrize every other year instead of annually.
