The ‘Y Talent Award’ is an international visual arts competition to celebrate the creativity of exceptional young artists between the age of 13 to 18 from all around the world. The Y Talent Award is a collaboration between the Y Art Centre, founded by the internationally acclaimed contemporary artist Yue Minjun, and Ruthin School, one of the oldest schools in the UK. The judging panel will select ten prize winners, including one grand prize. The judging panel consists of five professional visual artists, who are honorary members of the Y Art Centre. The ten winners will be invited to exhibit their work at Ruthin School, UK, from June to July 2024.

The judges are looking for a blend of creativity, technical prowess and emotional resonance. Like the works of Yue Minjun, they will seek artworks that demonstrate a unique and innovative approach to the medium, pushing the boundaries of traditional aesthetics and challenging the status quo. Originality and a distinctive artistic voice will be highly valued, as well as the ability to convey a compelling narrative or message through the visual language. Technical skill and craftsmanship will also play a significant role, with attention to detail, composition, and use of materials being key considerations. Furthermore, the judges will look for pieces that evoke genuine emotions, provoke thoughtful reflection, or spark a visceral response in the viewer.

Y Art Centre

The Y Art Centre aims to support the artistic journey of young talents across the globe, through a rich tapestry of international, cultural and artistic exchange initiatives. Our vision for the Art Centre is to nurture artistic talents and encourage young people to express themselves through various art forms such as painting, writing, drama and music.

"Youth is our future. We hope to provide an international art platform to showcase the creativity and imagination of young artists from different countries and regions, and encourage young artists to communicate and develop through this platform." - Yue Minjun
