During the same period, the Federal Office of Culture also invites submissions for the third award for innovative dance involving young people, in association with the Stanley Thomas Johnson Foundation (STJS). For information and regulations, see: www.bak.admin.ch/dance
The prize is aimed at professional Swiss choreographers and dance ensembles at the beginning of their careers and whose work exhibits particular potential. In summer 2017, the Federal Dance Jury will propose between three and five of the submitted projects to the STJS. From these the Foundation will select the winner, who will receive a prize worth CHF 25,000.
