DUE TO POPULAR DEMAND, THE DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS TO THE YOUNG MASTERS ART PRIZE 2014 HAS BEEN EXTENDED TO THE 15TH JUNE 2014
We are delighted to announce that due to popular demand the deadline for applications to the third edition of the Young Masters Art Prize has been extended.
Artists, working in any medium and from anywhere in the world, are invited to submit applications until the 15th June 2014. The shortlisted artists will participate in two exhibitions, at Sphinx Fine Art and at the Lloyds Club, London between September and December 2014, curated by R/E Collective. The exhibitions will also feature previous winner Lottie Davies as a guest artist with further guest artists to be announced. An expert judging panel consisting of Godfrey Barker, Charles Saumarez Smith, Roy Bolton, Ben Austin, Werner Grub and Daisy McMullan, will award three Prizes; an overall Prize of £1,500 and two highly commended Prizes of £500 each, kindly donated by the Artists’ Collecting Society. The winning artists will also be invited to exhibit in a showcase of their work in an international location as part of the Young Masters International Tour in 2015. The third edition of the Young Masters Art Prize also sees the launch of the inaugural
Young Masters Maylis Grand Ceramics Prize. The Prize of £1,500 has been generously donated by James and Maylis Grand and will be awarded to an artist who shows exceptional command of the medium of ceramics alongside an awareness of the art of the past and the heritage of ceramic craft.
The Prize was founded in 2009 by respected gallerist, Cynthia Corbett, who launched the prize in order to celebrate artistic skill and innovation. The Second Edition of the Prize in 2012 included exhibitions at Sphinx Fine Art in October 2012, and an exhibition and prize ceremony at Gallery 27 on Cork Street in November, with 26 shortlisted artists presented alongside three guest artists: Yinka Shonibare MBE, Ali Assaf and Lluís Barba. 2013 saw a highly successful Tour of seven venues throughout the UK, including Cork Street, Henley Festival and Sphinx Fine Art.
