Submissions for the 2018 Columbia Threadneedle Prize open in June 2017

Submission opens for the ninth edition of the biennial Columbia Threadneedle Prize on Monday 19 June. Artists may submit a maximum of six works online up to 12 noon on Friday 22 September 2017. The exhibition of selected works opens to the public at Mall Galleries on Wednesday 31 January 2018.

The Columbia Threadneedle Prize champions figurative art today. It is one of the most valuable open art competitions in Europe, offering a first prize of £20,000, plus the opportunity to exhibit a wider body of work at a solo exhibition at Mall Galleries in the succeeding year. The Visitors’ Choice Award is £10,000 and is awarded by visitors to the exhibition. 

The competition is open to all artists aged 18 or over, living or practicing in the UK or Continental Europe. Artists are encouraged to submit fresh and topical paintings, drawings, prints, sculptures, 3D works or reliefs.  All sculptures and other works submitted from outside the UK will be selected, in the first instance, online.

All works must be for sale. The organisers are introducing a new online sales platform to meet wider sales demand.
