Catalyst Award 2010 by tranzit.hu
Catalyst award is a contemporary art award that was founded by tranzit.hu with the aim to foster a greater collective appreciation of initiatives that are inspiring for the local intellectual community. The prize is awarded to individuals, projects and initiatives that directly or indirectly have an impact on the contemporary art scene and contribute to the presentation, discussion and mediation of progressive contemporary art.
More than 60 projects were proposed by experts and in a campaign on facebook for the prizes, which were awarded in two categories: MOTOR for initiatives that started in or before 2009, that have a long-term impact and a function as a catalyst; and NOVELTY for catalyst intitiatives that started recently. The winners are Liget Gallery (category MOTOR) and Crosstalk Video Productions (category NOVELTY).
