In seven years, the COAL Prize became an international meeting place for artists who take up the main universal issue of our time : ecology.

The global ecological crisis now affects all societies, territories and activities, whether by climate change, depletion of resources, various forms of pollution or loss of biodiversity. A global crisis that criss-cross its economic and social consequences. But this crisis is also a cultural one. The dominant values and representations, our globalized culture, determine our individual and collective behaviours, and ultimately our collective impacts on Planet Earth. Therefore, the solutions to this crisis can not only be political and technical. Culture can be a major player. This is what COAL has been promoting since its founding in 2008.

The COAL Prize is open to artists from all over the world who deploy their creativity to devise and experiment with solutions and bear witness to the transformation of territories, lifestyles, organizations, and means of production, while making a contribution to the process themselves. Together they are participating in building a new collective narrative, a new world of imagination, an evolving shared heritage, a positive framework that is optimistic and essential for everyone to find the motivation to implement the necessary changes towards a more sustainable world.

The COAL Prize, created in 2010 by the COAL Art and Ecology non profit organisation, has become a vehicle of identification, promotion and diffusion of these artists, to the general public, professionals of culture and ecology and political figures. Every year the COAL Prize highlights ten projects by artists working on environmental issues in the field of visual arts. They are selected through an international call for projects. One of them is awarded the COAL Prize by a jury of personalities from the domains of art and ecology. In addition, all the applications considered by COAL and the selection committee make it possible to make known artists and projects that can be solicited or promoted according to the other opportunities and actions carried out by the association.
