We are delighted to announce the introduction of a number of special incentives for young artists: a Young Artist First Prize of £4,000, a Young Artist Second Prize of £2,000, and a reduced entry fee for young artists - just £5 per work.
In addition, ten young artists will be selected for an online exhibition which will be available to view for one month on the Derwent website. The exhibition will provide the selected artists with additional exposure for their work to a highly engaged audience.
Derwent is committed to supporting artists in the form of both cash prizes and exposure. For this reason, the 2020 edition of the Prize will see one artist winning an Advertorial Award with Aesthetica Magazine, an international art and culture publication with a readership of over 400,000 and the Young Artist Winner having their winning entry displayed at the Moniker Art Fair, a hyper-curated five day contemporary art fair exhibiting an international roster of the finest artists and galleries at the cutting edge of urban art and culture, in New York in May 2020 and London in October 2020. Derwent is passionate about building both a community and a legacy for the Art Prize. As an exhibitor, the story doesn’t end with the close of the London exhibition; you become part of the Art Prize community which Derwent strives to support through opportunities such as involvement in art fairs and online exhibitions.
