Round 1 Entry in Mixed Media
Round 1 deadline: February 26th
The ArtSlant Prize supports emerging artists working in all media. We offer cash prizes and an exhibition to winners, with opportunities to sell and promote your work to our international network throughout the process.
Full details on all the prizes available are listed below. For an idea of the kind of work that has been selected by our panels in previous years, check below.
Each round of our prize is judged by a panel of three independent art professionals. In the past, these have included gallery owners and curators from some of the top galleries in the world, as well as renowned critics and artists. We have six rounds in total.
