Mainel’s Painting Award is directed to artists of any nationality, under the age of 35. The aim is to encourage the creative work of young people, who can make a coherent proposal aimed at an audience interested in contemporary art.

The most important characteristic of Mainel’s Painting award is not its financial envelope but its jury, which consists of people and specialists of the art world.

The career of the young artists is pushed with the exhibition of their work, a publication in a catalogue and, in the latest issues, a commercial exhibition in the Galería9 in Valencia.
