Final four weeks to enter the Art Gemini Prize - £5000 cash prizes plus the chance to be exhibited in London at the Rebecca Hossack Gallery
Photographers and Artists have just four weeks to enter the Inaugural Art Gemini Prize, deadline 30 September 2013.
The ArtGemini Prize is a celebration to promote international contemporary art for emerging and established artists around the world.
It is an independent competition, open to all artists from anywhere in the world. There is no age limit. One of the main benefits is that shortlisted applicants will be exhibited in London at the Rebecca Hossack Gallery. The winners will be announced at this exhibition of the finalists’ works.
Latest international entries have come from Belgium, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Mexico, Spain and Switzerland.
In addition, artists will be supporting the charity Kids Company in London, which helps give opportunities to many of our capital’s underprivileged young and helps them through fragile formative stages of their lives.
“Our ambition is humble enough: if we succeed in bringing to international audiences even ONE artist of exceptional talent, we’ll have reason to conclude that we have achieved something. Of course, we want to do better than that, and strive to spread the benefit of our being here in this dynamic, ever changing, ever exciting space for creativity and its tangible result in new art.” Sajid Rizvi, Chair Art Gemini Prize.
A cash fund of £5000 will be awarded to the winners in three categories.
