The Tupajumi foundation is proud to present the TFHMF Award 2014, a brand new crowd funded award* created by us and HeavyMerryFinland. The main objective by both organisations is to promote (inter)national artists worldwide at key locations within local art scenes.

This year we present 5 artists selected by an international jury of critics, art professionals and fellow artists. One will win the TFHMF Award, including prize money partially raised by you the visitor.

You are asked to cast a vote on your favourite artwork (min. €1 per vote). All the visitors will decide who the lucky winner will be! And we will do our utmost to get as many votes as possible!

*a crowd funded award

1. Artists themselves partially crowd funded the award by contributing a small participation fee.
2. Visitors pay a small fee to cast a vote for their favourite artwork.
3. The TFHMF organisation started a crowd funding campaign in order to further raise the prize money.

The Tupajumi foundation works solemnly for the promotion of contemporary art & artists. Tupajumi tries to achieve this by organizing art-related events, group exhibitions and by any other means they come up with.

The foundation offers the participating artists new opportunities and markets in order for the artist to expand it’s network.

If you feel like the above text has not given you any in-depth information what so ever, you are completely right. So drop in at our "Fishing for ducklings" booth and ask us questions, they even don’t have to be about art but you’ll get the personal attention you’ve been looking for and might even win some art.
