The Burlington Contemporary Art Writing Prize 2022





The Burlington Contemporary Art Writing Prize seeks to discover talented writers on contemporary art. Since its foundation in 1903 The Burlington Magazine has considered the art of the present to be as worthy of study as the art of the past. The Burlington Contemporary Art Writing Prize advances our commitment to the study of contemporary art in the magazine and on Burlington Contemporary.

Designed to encourage aspiring writers, the Prize promotes clear, concise and well-structured writing that is able to navigate sophisticated ideas without recourse to over-complex language. For submission criteria, please visit:

This year the Prize will be judged by Griselda Pollock and Legacy Russell.
