The EDP Foundation Art Grand Prize, created in 2000, is a triannual initiative from EDP Foundation. It aims to recognise a visual artist with an established and historically relevant career whose work contributes towards determining and reinforcing Portuguese contemporary aesthetic trends.

As well as the significant pecuniary prize, the winner is celebrated in a retrospective and/or anthological exhibition, and through the publication of a catalogue to be held as an important historiographic and bibliographic reference.

In its previous editions, EDP Foundation Art Grand Prize has distinguished great figures of the national contemporary art scene, such as Lourdes Castro (2000), Mário Cesariny (2002), Álvaro Lapa (2004), Eduardo Batarda (2007), Jorge Molder (2010), Ana Jotta (2013) and Artur Barrio (2016).
