Call for submissions from artists 35 and under


The Biscuit Factory is the UK's largest independent art gallery. We've just launched a charity to support the visual arts, The Biscuit Factory Foundation, and to inaugurate it we're running an open call competition for artists aged 35 or under living or working in the UK. Young Artists of the Year is an opportunity for emerging artists as well as young established artists to engage with the art market and receive exposure and promotion. The best submissions will form an exhibition in Newcastle in November 2011. An overall winner will be crowned Biscuit Factory Foundation Young Artist of the Year 2011 by a panel of judges and will be offered a solo exhibition at The Biscuit Factory in 2012. They will receive the the promotion of the gallery and The Journal's Culture Magazine, in addition to the award of prizes suppllied by our sponsors Winsor and Newton and Blackwell's bookshop. A second Peoples' Choice winner will be chosen by visitors to The Biscuit Factory and our websites, and will receive a secondary prize package from our sponsors. The deadline for submissions is 6th November 2011. For more information and entry forms please visit www.youngartistsoftheyear.com
