It used to be awarded by Wschodnia Gallery, but in 2011 Dariusz Bieńkowski (the sponsor) and Józef Robakowski moved it to Muzeum Sztuki in Łódź. The Katarzyna Kobro Award winner is selected by a body composed of representatives of artistic environment.
This year the Jury members are Agnieszka Kurant (Chair), Zbigniew Libera , Jan Simon, Monika Sosnowska.
This year the award winner was Cezary Bodzianowski.
