The Signature Art Prize was founded in 2007, and is only award of its kind that aims to promote the work of artists in the very early stages of their careers. Drawing attention to the unique perspective of students and recent graduates, the prize champions their signature themes and aims to bring their work into the spotlight.
The prize is open to those currently studying an arts-based course at university, and those who have graduated within the last 3 years.
Those who visit university degree shows will be aware of the remarkable talent and high standards on show, and the Signature Art Prize aims to capture this energy and assist young artists in exhibiting and promoting their work in an often challenging art world.
This years show will have categories for Painting, Sculpture, Photography & Film, and Drawing & Printmaking. The winner of each category will recieve:
- a £1,000 cash prize
- Representation with DegreeArt
- Inclusion at a London Group Exhibition
- A comission
Furthermore, a winner for each category is chosen by the public. People's choice winners recieve £500. Winning artwork is included in a gala event and gallery exhibition.
Applications will be accepted until Monday 15th of December, at a cost of £10. You can apply via the Signature Art Prize website here: http://www.signatureartprize.com/
