Professor Nick Tobier Appointed US Juror For The 2024 Zvono Award


In May, Stamps professor Nick Tobier will travel to Bihac, Bosnia + Herzegovina, as the U.S. juror for this year’s 2024 Zvono Award. While in Bosnia, Nick will give a lecture at the University of Bihac and participate in Architecture Week at KRAK, Bihac’s award-winning center for contemporary art. The Zvono Award is awarded once a year based on a publicly announced competition and with an independent expert jury. This is the most significant professional stimulation in Bosnia and Herzegovina intended for young artists, with a two-month artistic stay at the Residency Unlimited in New York as its primary content. 

Since 2006, when it was established, the Zvono Award has been considered a valuable professional reference and a motivation for commitment to the artistic profession. It is part of a more comprehensive network of participating organizations called the Young Visual Artist Award (YVAA) from Central and Eastern Europe, consisting of Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Montenegro, the Czech Republic, Croatia, Kosovo, Hungary, Northern Macedonia, Slovakia, Slovenia and Serbia. The Award is organized and performed with the Trust for Mutual Understanding and Residency Unlimited from New York.

Artists from Bosnia and Herzegovina up to 33 years of age actively engaged in visual arts (painting and printmaking, sculpture, photography, video, objects and installations, new media, etc.) can apply for the Zvono Award.
