A new vision featuring measures over a three-year period is to ensure the Spring Exhibition a position as the most important adjudicated open art exhibition in northern Europe by 2014. In 2010, the Spring Exhibition is taking the first two important steps towards realising this objective:

• A new, permanent model for the work of the jury and a newly established Jury's Award are to ensure a higher quality in the submitted works of art.

• A new section of the Spring Exhibition in 2010: 24/7 – art created for an online exhibition space, to be presented in cooperation with DR.

You can apply with up to 5 contributions in the categories: painting, sculpture, installation, graphic art, architecture, design, photography, video, film, performance, animation, sound art,, software art, visual poetry (mixed forms of text and image). There is a time-limit of 5 minutes for video, film, animation and other time-based works.

A permanent model for the Nordic composition of the jury and its work

A new jury structure, with international capacities, the establishment of a Jury's Award, tougher adjudicating, and a broader Nordic focus. A new feature is also the limit being placed on the number of accepted works:

• 125 works are selected for Spring Exhibition 2010
• 10 works are recommended for the Jury's Award
• 1 work is given the Jury's Award at the opening ceremony of Spring Exhibition 2010

The jury of Spring Exhibition 2010 and 24/7:
Carl Michael von Hausswolff (SE), president of the jury, artist and curator
Cecilia Gelin (SE), curator
Johan Holten (DK) , director, Kunstverein Heidelberg
Børre Sæthre (NO), artist
Salla Tykkä (FIN), photographer and videoartist

The Jury's Award in brief

A new feature is that the jury will have the task of recommending ten works for the Jury's Award, and of selecting a winner among them. The award is a recognition of supreme artistic quality and present-day relevance at the exhibition. The award also includes a sum of money and a statement by the jury. The winner of the Jury's Award will be announced at the private-viewing evening and it will be handed over by the jury president.

New measures: 24/7 – art created for an online exhibition space
24/7 is part of Spring Exhibition 2010 and will be presented in cooperation with DR. The online exhibition forum will be accessible via the DR media platform and be shown at
