The Elevate Artivism Award will be given to an Austrian artist or artist group, who  engages in sociopolitical issues and is actively working for positive and sustainable change. In the spirit of the Elevate Festival (combining contemporary music and political discourse), this award should encourage artists to engage in activism. 

Bands, artists, groups and initiatives (all art forms) were nominated in a public call for nominees (April to June 2014). The Elevate team and FM4 chose five finalists out of 17 nominations.

This award is presented in cooperation with Radio FM4. The top five contestants will be presented by FM4 and voted on in the public voting phase on this website from October 1-15 2014.
