About

Established by Elikem Nutifafa Kuenyehia in 2014,

the objective of the Kuenyehia Prize is to identify, reward and help develop Ghana’s most outstanding artists between the ages of 25 and 40. In addition to prize money and materials totalling twenty five thousand Ghana Cedis (GHS 25,000), one winner and two runners-up will benefit from business training and coaching.

Nominations will be invited each year, and the prize is judged by an independent jury. Ten artists will be shortlisted, with an overall winner and two runner-ups selected by the Jury
