Anticipation is building at Young Masters Art Prize as our panel of judges compile their shortlists for the 2012 prize. This year we have received an unprecedented number of applications from international artists around the world and the judges are keen to do justice to each and every one.

Here is a short film from one of our judges, Roy Bolton, owner of Sphinx Fine Art in Kensington, who will be hosting the first of our autumn exhibitions in October of this year. He explains some of his criteria for judging.
