Entries for the Robert Walters Group UK New Artist Award 2021 in collaboration with arts charity UK New Artists and the Saatchi Gallery are now open. The brief: Where do we go from here? Is there to be a ‘new normal’? Will challenge new and emerging artists to explore the impact and aftermath of what has been a globally turbulent and trialling time for all – from our relationship to the things we once held close, right through to the pressure and barriers that the pandemic directly presented on our lives?
Eligibility: To be eligible for the award, you must be age 18 or over, and within the first 10 years of your professional practice, and have the right to live, work or study in the UK.
What you get: The winner will receive a cash prize of £10,000 and the artist’s work will be shown at the Robert Walters Group head office in Covent Garden for 12 months. The runner-up will also receive £5,000 from Robert Walters Group to help fund their future career in the visual arts.
