Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize 2018: Call for Entries




Artists are invited to submit entries for the Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize 2018, the largest and longest running annual open exhibition dedicated to drawing in the UK.

The Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize is led by founding Director Professor Anita Taylor at Bath Spa University and supported by the Trinity Buoy Wharf Trust. Selected from original art works, the annual exhibition has established a reputation for its commitment to championing excellence and in promoting and celebrating the role and value of current drawing practice within the UK.

The Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize, previously known as Jerwood Drawing Prize, is open to UK-based drawing practitioners, from student to established. This open exhibition is a platform for all drawing practitioners in the UK to showcase their work alongside leading contemporary artists in the field.

An independent panel of selectors will select up to 70 drawings for an exhibition that will launch at Trinity Buoy Wharf, a thriving centre for the arts and creative industries. The exhibition will subsequently tour to venues nationwide. A First Prize of £8,000; Second Prize of £5,000; and a Student Award of £2,000 will be awarded at a private ceremony at Trinity Buoy Wharf in September 2018.

Online registration for artists entering the Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize will close at 5pm on 27 June 2018. Once registered, applicants can submit their works through one of the regional Collection Centres.

Deadline for online registration: Wednesday 27 June 2018, 5pm.
