Graduate Art Prize – £1000
Founded in 2013, the Graduate Art Prize was set up with the direct aim of introducing young artists directly to the corporate art market, providing another means of supporting them and helping get their careers off the ground, away from the traditional gallery route.
The award was first set up by art consultants ARTIQ, together with the London office of global law firm Herbert Smith Freehills. The winner receives a £1,000 cash prize and all shortlisted artists will get the opportunity to sign with ARTIQ, an innovative art consultancy with a variety of clients ranging from large international corporates to collectors who have a keen interest in emerging, talented artists.
Now in its 4th year, the prize attracts nationwide talent and is steadily gaining a reputation for helping establish emerging artist’s careers. They are now accepting submissions for the 2016 edition. Find out more at www.graduateartprize.com.
