Eligibility:

The Sunny Art Prize is an international art prize hosted by Sunny Art Centre, London. This fine art competition, based in the UK, is a global platform offering art opportunities for emerging and established artists to showcase their artworks internationally. The exhibiting galleries are located in cities across the world,  including London, Beijing and Shanghai. The art contest also gives the art prize-winners the opportunity to be part of a one-month artist residency. The Artist Residency Programme is organised in collaboration with established Chinese art institutions and it provides the chance to engage with historically and culturally rich places in China.

What Do We Look For?
