Selection process:

The Budapest Art Mentor Program has a two-step admission process.
First, an advisory board evaluates the submitted materials (CV, online portfolio, motivation letter).

Members of the board in 2017:

  • Júlia Fabényi (Director of the Ludwig Museum)
  • Attila Ledényi (Director of Art Market Budapest)
  • Kriszta Kovács (Director of the Várfok Gallery)

Members of the board in 2018:

  • Bálint Ferenczy (art historian, art consultant)
  • Enikő Róka (Director of the Municipal Gallery)
  • Csaba Tóth (Director of AMC Networks Central Europe, collector)

First, the three members of the board award points to the applicants individually. Those receiving the highest scores are required to appear at an interview in person during which, in addition to the talentedness of the artists, mentors will also assess whether they are a good fit for the program.

In the end, those applicants are admitted to the one-year program who are deemed worthy of participation by the board as well as the jury consisting of the mentors not only based on their professional mindset, but their overall mentality as well.
