Between October 1st and November 30th the audience can vote for his/her favorite painting(s). During these months the website attracts more than 150.000 unique visits by art lovers per month.
In this way, the public determines the winner of the Audience Award.

Everyone can only vote for the same painting once. However, it is possible to vote for several paintings. Unfair play is not allowed and will have consequences.
For more information about voting, see the Conditions of Participation 2023.

Click here to vote (starting from October 1st).

Do you want to vote? Then follow the steps below:

  1. Find the painting you want to vote in the overview of all paintings and click on it or use the search function (top right corner of the website).
  2. Please enter a valid e-mail address.
  3. Click on VOTE - you will now receive an automatic message on the email address you have entered (just to be sure, look in the spam filter if the message is not in your inbox).
  4. Click on the link in the e-mail.
  5. Activate your vote here. You will now be redirected to the confirmation page.
  6. Your vote is now registered and will be added to the total number of votes within seconds. If you do not see this processed immediately, you can refresh your browser (F5).

The paintings are in a different place every day, so that not always the same paintings are 'at the front' of the overview.

TIP for artists:
If you want people to vote for your painting(s), please share the specific page link of your work or tell voters to use your name or that of the painting(s) in the search engine of the website (right top corner of the website).
