New Figurative Art Prize
The Mall Galleries in London have announced a major new art competition with two awards totalling £35,000: the Threadneedle Figurative Prize. If you're in or near London, visit the Open Day at the Mall Galleries on 19 April; otherwise click the title link for submission details. The registration deadline is 20 June. The winner will be decided by a public vote available online and throughout the exhibition, which opens on 20 August and continues until 6 September 2008. The selectors are seeking innovative artworks that "stretch the boundaries of traditional figurative media, without compromising technique or artistic excellence"; but the public will have the final say! P.S. British residents only.
