The open call for submissions to the third 2025 Taoyuan International Art Award, organized by the Taoyuan Museum of Fine Arts (TMoFA), will take place from April 1 to 26, 2024. This Award is for new works presented publicly for the first time and which have never entered government-organized competitions in Taiwan. Artists may participate as individuals or groups regardless of nationality or age.

The predecessor to the Taoyuan International Art Award was the Taoyuan Contemporary Art Award, which has been one of the most significant contemporary art competitions in Taiwan since 2001. In 2020, the Taoyuan Contemporary Art Award rebranded itself and launched the first “2021 Taoyuan International Art Award”. The Award is now to be held every two years, with an international jury. The scope of open calls has also now been extended globally, thereby strengthening international exchanges and laying a solid foundation for artistic research and creation. For this edition, the Grand Prize winner receives NTD 600,000, and three Honorable Mention winners each receives NTD 200,000. In addition, a Sojourn Award of NTD 350,000 will be offered to a Taiwanese artist for a tour abroad to inspire creations and cultivate artistic talents.
