       Rolex stated that the purpose of launching this special project in 2002 was “to contribute to global culture”. This goes hand in hand with the brand’s tradition of ‘supporting the best individuals.’ Rolex’s main marketing method over the years is to use world-renowned successful people in various industries as the protagonist of the advertisement, as well as the Rolex Award for Talent. For 35 years, this project has been aimed at ‘improving life or protecting the natural and cultural heritage of the planet’ and supporting innovative personal behaviors around the world. Since its establishment in 1976, the Rolex Awards, which are awarded every two years, have received 30,000 applications from 154 countries and 120 awards.
       In some ways, the Rolex Creative Funding Program is the little brother of the Rolex Awards, even though it only covers the cultural realm. This year, buildings have been added to the five fields of dance, film, literature, music and visual arts. Every two years, a committee of outstanding artists and art workers makes a list of mentor candidates in each area. If they agree to cooperate, Rolex will work with them to select young artists they want to work with. This process is very important, because each instructor should take at least 6 weeks from his precious time to work with the selected students.

    Literary student finalist: Naomi Alderman (UK), selected by mentor Margaret Atwood (Canada)
       Naomi Alderman, 37, graduated from Oxford University in 1996 and received a master’s degree in creative writing from the University of East Anglia in 2003.

She was also named Young Writer of the Year by the Sunday Times in 2007. The novel was later translated into ten languages ​​and distributed. In 2010, she launched her new book, The Lessons, which explores the struggle between rights and wealth.

       Egyptian singer and songwriter Dina El Wedidi, 24, began writing songs when she was a girl and studying Oriental languages ​​at the University of Cairo. Her songs are full of attention to the real politics of Egypt. From 2007 to 2010, she worked as a singer and actor at the ElWarsha Theatre Troupe, performed Egyptian folk music, and performed on unusual occasions such as Cairo prison. During this period (2009-2010), she performed classic Egyptian and Arabic songs in collaboration with the Habayebna band, before setting up her own band in 2011.
       Young artists, ie future students, cannot apply directly. Panels of experts in various fields of art select candidates around the world and then encourage them to submit applications. After evaluation by the review members, three candidates are suggested to each mentor. The tutor makes the final decision after meeting each person individually.
       This personalized screening provides the basis for future guidance. Unlike the school environment ranked by high and low, this project provides a well-known exchange and true dialogue between artists of different ages and cultures. The goal is to help young artists develop and strengthen their artistic path, rather than simply copying and imitating others.
       On the economic side, each candidate will receive funding of 25,000 Swiss francs, as well as travel and other expenses, during the one-year mentoring period. At the end of the year, each candidate will receive another 25,000 Swiss francs for specific projects. As for the mentor, each can receive 50,000 Swiss francs.

His works break the rules and challenge fashion trends and tastes. His latest adaptations include Brand, The City, The Chosen Ones (2011), and Freud-inspired Hans, Dora and Wolf (2012).
    Visual arts student finalist: Mateo López (Colombia), selected by mentor William Kentridge (South Africa)
       Colombian visual artist Mateo López, 33, studied architecture at the University of Javierana for one year, but eventually graduated from the Department of Fine Arts of the Andean University.

Mateo López often places his studio in a public place, blending footage from his personal journey into his work. His series Viaje sin movimiento (Travelling without movement, 2008-2010) is in the collection of the New York Museum of Modern Art (MoMA).
