We're launching the 2020 emerging artist prize with a talk exploring how our judges choose the shortlist, what to include in your applications, how to stand out in a busy art world and more!


Join us for a panel discussion where we will discuss what we hope to see in applications to the art prize, give tips on what catches our eyes as judges, curators, art buyers for collections and clients and gallerists, as well as what happens after finding art prize success. Joining prize director Conrad Carvalho on the panel is new judge and V&A Curator Melanie Lenz, judge and art advisor Averil Curci and recent winner of the BP Portrait Award plus previously shortlisted artist Charlie Schaffer.
