Open Call | Aesthetica Art Prize 2017, UK (Submission Fee)


Application Deadline: 31 August

The 11th Aesthetica Art Prize is Now Open for Entries. Hosted by Aesthetica Magazine, the Aesthetica Art Prize is a celebration of excellence in art from across the world. It offers both emerging and established artists the opportunity to showcase their work to a wider audience, and further their engagement with the international art world. The Judging Panel enhances its position in the industry, bringing together specialists from leading cultural institutions.

The award attracts thousands of entries in a range of innovative media from locations as diverse as Australia, Germany, India, Japan, Malaysia, the Netherlands, the UK and the USA. 2016’s finalists include Rachel Ara, founder of the artists collective [ALLOY]; Liz West, recipient of the Royal British Society of Sculptors Bursary Award; and Ellie Davies, who has since shown new and recent works in the exhibition Into the Woods at Crane Kalman, London.
