The neo:artprize is part of a series of high profile international open exhibitions, facilitated by Bolton based neo:studios, a not-for-profit artist-led organisation founded in 2007.
The success of previous prizes together with the 12-week neo:residency sponsored by the University of Bolton offered to new graduates, ensures that the quality of submissions continues to rise.
The neo:artprize is an international, open exhibition, attracting submissions from over 25 countries from all 5 continents, aiming to raise awareness of new trends and directions in the contemporary art world, and provide a platform for artists to showcase excellence and innovation, bringing to Bolton the best contemporary art from around the world.
