Five hun­dred artists gather in Le Tou­quet for the Godon Trophy

P rize money of €10,000 to the win­ner, an all-​expenses paid trip and the oppor­tu­nity of an exhi­bi­tion in a pres­ti­gious Miami gallery: this is what the artist who takes away the first prize in the Godon Tro­phy stands to win this afternoon.

Yester­day, Alain Godon was delighted to wel­come five hun­dred artists, pho­tog­ra­phers and sculp­tors, with one work of art apiece, and who were assem­bled at the Palais de Con­grès and the Hôtel de Ville. These are artists at the begin­ning of their careers and who hope to achieve pub­lic recog­ni­tion. “This is the end aim of this event”, Alain Godon explained. “The Godon Tro­phy in Le Tou­quet is the only place that gives artists an oppor­tu­nity to exhibit their work free of charge. Some­times, in other places you have to pay as much as a thou­sand euros for the right to hang a paint­ing on a wall. Here, it’s free! But above and beyond the prize, which is of course impor­tant, the Tro­phy is an oppor­tu­nity for artists to meet and com­pare experiences.”
