The prize was established in memory of Spiridon Neven DuMont, who created an extensive body of work consisting of photography, drawings, and paintings during his almost five-year artistic phase.
In honor of their prematurely deceased son, publisher and editor Professor Alfred Neven DuMont (†) and his wife Hedwig recognized outstanding works by students of the Academy of Media Arts (KHM) in Cologne with the art prize from 1998 to 2015. Spiridon- also studied at this college.
With prize money ranging from €7,500 to €10,000, the Spiridon-Neven-DuMont Prize was the most generously endowed prize at a German art college.
