The Women In Art Prize is part of a broader project by us the "Women In Art" to assist and celebrate women artists.
We focus on the careers of emerging female painters and photographers, the award will be moving into other mediums as we recognise other women artists want to be involved.
Women in Art is a female-led not-for-profit community whose aim is to support mentor and promote women artists
This prize is aimed at supporting, encouraging and mentoring emerging women painters and photographers.
Each year 22 artists are chosen from this award to exhibit in London. From these 22 talented women, the first prize is awarded to a painter with exceptional potential to become an established professional artist.
This exhibition offers a genuine opportunity for emerging women artists to further their careers and for art collectors to invest in the future of the art world’s emerging talent.
DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION STATEMENT
At the Women In Art Prize, we appreciate the importance of creating an environment in which all of our colleagues, associates and artists can feel valued, included and empowered to be their best.
We recognise that the unique experiences, perspectives, and viewpoints of our various partners, associates and artists are critical to creating an atmosphere that is engaging and inspiring to artists all over the world.
Therefore, our goal is to foster an art prize that is attractive to women artists no matter what stage they are in their development. In our associates, we look for the best people to help nurture such development and help create a confidence and profound sense of pride in both our prize and the artists that participate.
We welcome artists and associates who:
Embrace different cultures, ethnicities and sexual orientations
Create a work environment that fosters growth and advancement
Who will engage with our artists and audiences in a way that reflects and respects their unique perspectives and experiences.
The selection of the artwork for the final of The Women In Art Prize is made purely on the judge’s assessment of the work before them. All artist’s details remain private until the final selection.
All our associates and artists should ensure they align with the ethos of the Prize and we take any digression from the ethos very seriously.
