The GlobArt Award honours persons whose lives and work reflect GlobArt aims and ideals; men and women who can be looked upon as examples of GlobArt philosophy both by what they do and by who they are.
Recipients of the award are presented with a symbolic figure designed by Professor Josef Kaiser of the Vienna University of Applied Art, an associate of Prof. Adolf Frohner, sculptor and designer of such coins as the Austrian version of the Euro.

In expressive simplicity the figure is designed to call to mind the specific elements of this award: a synthesis of spirituality, creativity and social awareness.

Previous recipients of this award include Lord Yehudi Menuhin, Bishop Erwin Krautler, Vaclav Havel, Riccardo Muti, and Ernesto Cardinal.
