With a focus that stretches further than new graduates, the SOLO award recognises that artists can be producing exciting work at any age and any stage of their career. We deliberately distance ourselves from unhelpful and limiting tags such as 'young' and 'emerging', but welcome submissions from anyone aged 18 - 108. Now in its third year, the 2014 SOLO Award comprises £1000 cash to the winner and a solo presentation of their work at the London Art Fair in January 2015. With over 30,000 visitors to the 2014 fair, the winner can expect a huge, new audience to see their work. The Art Projects section of the fair will offer the winner the freedom to use the stand (approx 25sqm) in any way they choose, whether they are showing installation, video, painting, performance etc; Art Projects is a curated showcase of contemporary art from across the globe, featuring large-scale installations, solo shows and thematic group displays, alongside an extensive Film and Performance Programme presenting a selection of experimental work, and therefore presentations are not restricted to being commercial in nature. how to enter ---------- ▪ CLICK HERE TO APPLY NOW (http://www.wilsonwilliamsgallery.com/solo.htm#apply) and then simply follow the detailed instructions listed with the paypal button A, B, C 1-8, which will guide you through the following steps: ▪ Online entry fee of £25 ▪ Application via email: Maximum 3 images or multimedia files/links ▪ No CV, no statement, no application form required (further info will only be required if longlisted) ▪ Please read Key Dates and Terms & Conditions before applying! eligiblity & guidelines ---------- • Contemporary artists, working in any medium, at any stage in their career • Artists of all nationalities aged 18 or over, living or working in the UK & ROI • There is no set theme; work should be representative of your practice or process. • Media can include painting, sculpture, installation, performance, video, audio, drawing, collage, printmaking, digital, photography, mixed media, have we missed anything?
