ALL ECC AWARDS
THE EUROPEAN CULTURAL CENTRE AWARD
In order to draw attention towards and to promote specific individuals or projects, the non-profit GAA-Foundation (GAAF) awarded in 2010-2012-2013 and 2014 an artist(s) or architect(s) for his/her/their outstanding concept and execution thereof.
Since 2015 this prize is awarded by the European Cultural Centre and therefore renamed in the ECC Award. The ECC will give this Award each time to an artist(s), architect(s) or designer(s) who is/are dedicated to their concept over a longer period of time and whereby this concept and the execution thereof is in our opinion of significant meaning.
