Artist Edward Steichen was born as Éduard Jean Steichen in the Grand Duchy in 1879. Together with his parents he migrated to the United States as an infant. The award named in his honour is intended to be a cross-cultural, artistic and educational bridge between Luxembourg and New York. The award competition is open to contemporary visual and fine artists between the ages of 25 and 35, winners get to stay in New York City up to six months to expand their work while being sponsored by art institutes not only in Luxembourg, but also the regions surrounding the Grand Duchy.
