I am super excited to tell again that good things keep on happening. This time, it was quite unexpected. I submited my entry over the summer while looking for work, with not much of a hope to be honest, just curiousity led really. And ta-daaam- I am semi finalist of Signature Art Prize 2012.
Call for submissions stated:
The Signature Art Prize
presents an award for the most promising artists today. The competition
invites artists worldwide to apply for a chance to win one of five
£1,000.00 cash prizes, representation with DegreeArt, future exhibition
opportunities and artistic support, as well as gifts from the prize
The Signature Art Prize draws attention to emerging artist's
unique perspective, championing their signature themes and aesthetic –
and as such the prize is only open to current students and artists who
graduated within the last 3 years.
All entries will be reviewed by a panel of industry judges, and
shortlisted artists will be selected to exhibit at the Central London
awards night, followed by an extended 2-month exhibition at DegreeArt's
Execution Room in the cultural hub of Vyner St, East London.
So for one night at least, my work will stay at Spitalfields Market, and then the rest is in hands of the judges.
