Guidelines

  • You may enter up to two works per entry fee, unless you are entering an Artists’ Film, in which case you may submit one work per entry fee.

  • If you are submitting a series, this is considered one work. We recommend submitting one image which shows the whole series together (ie. The series hanging on a wall) then further images to show the detail. Alternatively, you could create a single document file which is made up of multiple images (ie. Like a college or tiles)

  • You may enter as many times as you wish.

  • Works previously exhibited and published elsewhere are accepted.

  • Collaborative works are accepted.

  • Works produced within the last three years are preferred, although works made at any time before submission can be entered.

  • There is no size limit, although the size of the work in relation to the exhibition space will be a consideration in the shortlisting process.

  • 100 artists are longlisted, out of which a selection of artists are shortlisted. Longlisted artists receive publication in the Future Now Annual. Shortlisted artists receive publication and are invited to take part in a group exhibition. The shortlist is eligible to win either the Main Art Prize or the Emerging Art Prize.

  • If you are shortlisted for the Prize, you will be asked to supply your artwork for the exhibition in York, UK. Artists selected for the exhibition will be responsible for all transportation (delivery and collection) costs of artworks.

Deadline: August 31, 2019
