The Vincent Award (Vincent van Gogh Biennial Award for Contemporary Art in Europe) is one of Europe's greatest art prizes. The purpose is to spur on a mid-career artist whose work is having an appreciable influence on the development of contemporary art in Europe.

In 2014, the expert jury has short-listed Pierre Huyghe (France), Manfred Pernice (Germany), Willem de Rooij (The Netherlands), Anri Sala (Albania) and Gillian Wearing (UK). Works by these five artists were on show at the Gemeentemuseum from 6 September 2014 to 1 February 2015.

On Friday 21 November the winner was announced during the Award Ceremony at the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag: Anri Sala. According to Benno Tempel, chairman of the international jury:

Sala succeeded the best in creating an installation where the viewer is constantly challenged by image, sound and movement. (...) It is a poetic and at the same time conceptual work.
