The Federal Office of Culture is continuing to expand its awards policy during the period 2012-2015. Until present, prizes and awards were restricted exclusively to the fields of art, design and film. Now, prizes and awards will also be bestowed in other areas of the creative arts, including dance. The aim is to honour the quality of professional artistic dance in all its diversity and to strengthen dance in Switzerland. In addition to a material reward, the federal prizes bring the winning artists official and public recognition and important media exposure.

The Federal Office of Culture is also committed to the promotion of professional organisations active in the field of dance. You can find their addresses and further useful contacts under the heading Links.
