Website: https://zealous.co/ukna/opportunity/Robert-Walters-Group-UK-New-Artist-of-the-Year-Award/

Three organisations are collaborating to provide a significant platform and steppingstone for new artists. Now in its second iteration, The Robert Walters Group UK New Artist of the Year Award in partnership with Saatchi Gallery will discover and champion exceptional artists who are representative of contemporary Britain. They are looking for artists who represent the UK’s richly diverse population and embody the experiences of their community. Artists who create bold, unique pieces of art that reveal their own perspectives and experiences and who represent unique viewpoints and will help start new conversations in the UK art scene. The final shortlist of 10 artists, selected by the judging panel, will have the opportunity to have their work exhibited at Saatchi Galler, at the awards evening. Following the awards ceremony, the ten finalist’s work will be exhibited in a virtual gallery for one month. The winner will receive a cash prize of £10,000 and the artist’s work will be shown at the Robert Walters Group head office in Covent Garden for 12 months. The runner-up will also receive £5,000 from Robert Walters Group to help. To be eligible for the award, you must be aged 18 or over, and within the first 10 years of your professional practice, and have the right to live, work or study in the UK.

Expires: August 31, 2021
