M&C Saatchi Group & London’s iconic Saatchi Gallery have launched a new Art Prize to drive meaningful change for emerging artists worldwide. This year’s prize invites emerging artists from around the world to creatively respond to the theme of ‘Equality’.
As part of a shared mission in making art, culture, and creativity accessible to everyone, this free-to-enter prize is a celebration of emerging artistic talent. It will highlight and stimulate dialogue around visual arts as a medium for positive global and social change and give exposure to emerging artists worldwide.
Accepted media includes painting, drawing, illustration, photography, collage, 2D mixed-media, video or film. Submitted works must creatively respond to the theme ‘Equality’ and have been executed since 1 January 2020. Works must be stable and capable of being shipped and installed on a walled surface.
One application per artist is permitted with a maximum of five artworks accepted.
There is no entry fee.
Open to emerging artists aged 18 or over based in the following regions: UK, Europe, Americas, Asia, Australia, and Africa.
A total prize fund of 20,000 GBP (approx. 24,325 USD) will be split between six regional winners, five to receive 2,000 GBP each and one overall winner to receive 10,000 GBP. All artists will exhibit their winning works in a dedicated exhibition at Saatchi Gallery, a recognised authority in contemporary art, where the overall winner will be announced.
