Since 1950 this competition has focused attention on young Belgian artists. Young means under 35 years of age; Belgian means based in Belgium; for a long time now, it has not been restricted to Painters. The competition is akin to the Turner Prize in the United Kingdom, the Prix Marcel Duchamp in France, and the Vincent in the Netherlands. Laureates such as Pierre Alechinsky, Ann Veronica Janssens, Hans Op de Beeck, and Christophe Terlinden indicate its international impact. All of those who have succeeded in convincing the extremely demanding jury are already winners. This years jury is made up of: Ann Demeester (De Appel, Amsterdam), Eva Gonzalez-Sancho (FRAC Bourgogne, Dijon), Stijn Huijts (Stedelijk Museum Het Domein, Sittard), Jérôme Sans (BALTIC, Gateshead), and Nicolaus Schafhausen (Witte De With, Rotterdam).

The seven candidates will produce for the occasion a new work that competes for the four awards: the Young Belgian Painters Award- Crowet ( 25,000), the Young Belgian Painters Award-Emile and Stephy Langui ( 12,500), the Centre for Fine Arts Award ( 12,500), and the ING Award ( 12,500).
