Stimulart Award is a competition for creative people organized by the five Stimulart cities in each year of project duration. The focus group and the topic of the competitions vary every year at each location. According to the Stmulart Award manual the first call addresses teens with creative objects linked to their city's identity, the second urges creatives to produce artistic pieces, while the third call focuses on creative services (the order of calls is optional for the partner cities). Each Stimulart city will have three champions at the end of the project and the partnership will vote for the ultimate Stimulart Award winner from the pool of local champions. Due to Covid19 restrictions Stimulart Award has only one local champion so far. The project partners are looking forward to celebrating further local champions of the first local calls soon.

The youngsters could use any technique and materials possibly in combination.
