Sunny Art Prize 2019: Call for Artists

Sunny Art Prize 2019: Call for Artists

The Sunny Art Prize is the first program outside of museological institutions and programs designed for artists that envisions the decentralisation of the art world as a way to broaden the horizons of both artists and the communities they engage with. It is a yearly art competition in the UK organised by the Sunny Art Centre with a selection of thirty artists who will take part in international activities, including exhibitions and a residency.

One of the most inclusive and diverse open submission prizes in London, the Sunny Art Prize offers unique exposure for both emerging and established artists to an audience spanning two continents. Created around the Sunny Art Centre’s unparalleled links between London, Beijing, Guangzhou and Macau, the prize winners will not only enjoy a month-long residency in China, but also the opportunity to exhibit both in the central London gallery and in prestigious galleries in China. A £6,000 total cash prize will be split between the first three winning artists.

You can submit artworks that fall under the categories of sculpture, painting, drawing, original print, photography, ceramic, mixed media, installation, video art and/or moving image, digital art (including physical work which is computer generated, e.g. digital prints).
