Information
Painting of the Year is an annual competition, organized by De Kunst Collega's B.V. (the Art Colleagues). The goal is not to determine what is the best painting in the world since that is very subjective and subject to many variables, but only to establish annually what is the most appreciated painting amongst all the contemporary paintings that participate. Furthermore the contest wants:
a. to increase the appreciation for painting in general;
b. to increase the (name) awareness of the participating painters in particular;
c. to create the largest possible (online) overview of contemporary paintings.

These objectives tie in well with the objectives of De Kunst Collega's B.V., based in Roermond. Registered with the Chamber of Commerce under number 67343058. Since the beginning of this century we have been committed to the interests of visual artists. For example, we (and our legal predecessor) organise art fairs, competitions and publish art books. With our team of passionate art lovers we want to bring artists and art lovers together with the art works at the center.
