The Jackson’s Open Painting Prize exists to recognise original, 2-dimensional fine artworks in any painting or drawing media. Our annual competition offers an online showcase and impressive prizes for contemporary and traditional visual artists, both emerging and established.
There will be a two-tier selection and judging process: first the Jackson’s selection panel will select a longlist and then the panel of expert judges (curators, gallerists and artists) will select first a short-list and then the winners, who will share a total prize fund of £11,000.
First Prize: £5,000 cash
Second Prize: £500 cash + £500 worth of Jackson’s Art Gift Vouchers
Third Prize: £500 cash + £500 worth of Jackson’s Art Gift Vouchers
Plus, 4 additional category prizes of £1,000 cash (artist judges TBA).
The Jackson’s Open Painting Prize will accept submissions from 4th January 2017 until 2nd April 2017. The price for entry will be £5 per artwork and each artist can submit up to a maximum of 5 artworks. We welcome entries from artists in any country and of any age, working in any of the two-dimensional media. Please note that photographs, computer generated or manipulated artwork and 3D sculptural works are not eligible for selection.
