The 2024 Marŝarto Awards recognise exceptional walking art. The Awards culminate in October, coinciding with Walktober, the global call to promote walking as a creative experience.

Work can include a variety of formats, approaches, and subjects, from a wide range of creative disciplines, including arts, heritage and history, health and wellbeing, social practices, journalism, performance, literature and theatre, ecology, tourism, and more.

Criteria for Marŝarto Awards 2024

Walking pieces are judged against the following criteria:

  • Walking: ‘Walking’ is integral to the work. That is, it is experienced as a walk. Walking is what gives the work its meaning, or it is the medium through which meaning is produced.
  • Research and context: The work grows out of research, or a line of inquiry, that contributes to, or expands, the field of walking art, in terms of either discourse, practices or concepts. Such research may derive from, but is not limited to, fields such as ecology, psychogeography, kinesiology and performance, landscape understanding, body-mind relationship, community building, territory awareness, political contexts, or occupied territories. The piece demonstrates awareness, on the part of the artist, of the questions that ‘walking art’ raises, as well as how it contributes to the discourse.
  • Contribution to walking art: The work makes a contribution to walking art in particular, that is, it furthers discourse, expands practices, deepens concepts. This can also mean it has an artistic, or poetic, dimension, and can bring out an emotional response, reflections on the part of the audience, or involvement and commitment, either directly from ‘consuming’ the work, or from following the documentation process.
  • Production quality: The piece is professional and well designed.
