Art For Change Prize 2023 now is over!
M&C Saatchi Group London’s iconic Saatchi Gallery recently have launched Art For Change Prize 2023 le, a new international art initiative to drive meaningful change for emerging artists worldwide.
M&C Saatchi Group & London’s iconic Saatchi Gallery have launched Art For Change Prize 2023, a new international art initiative open to artists working in the first five years of their career.
As part of a shared mission in making art, culture, and creativity accessible to everyone, this free-to-enter prize is a celebration of emerging artistic talent. It will highlight and stimulate dialogue around visual arts as a medium for positive global and social change and give exposure to emerging artists worldwide.
This year’s prize asks artists to creatively respond to the theme 'Regeneration'. The world is reacting to the rising drumbeat of climate chaos. The issues of climate justice, social justice, and economics are now inseparable, but there are reasons to be hopeful. Climate change is finally sinking in. Citizens are demanding change. Nations, cities, communities and corporations are stepping up.
This year’s prize brings with it the opportunity to create new stories of a liveable future and motivate people to do what it takes to be a driving force for the change we need. We have the opportunity to change this to a story that inspires and empowers.
Now is the time for action. Now is the time for meaningful change. Accepted media includes painting, drawing, illustration, photography, collage, 2D mixed-media, video or film. Submitted works must creatively respond to the theme ‘Regeneration’ and have been executed since 1 January 2021. Works must be stable and capable of being shipped and installed on a walled surface.
One application per artist is permitted with a maximum of five artworks accepted.
All artists will exhibit their winning works in a dedicated exhibition at Saatchi Gallery in London, where the overall winner will be announced at the end of November 2023. The exhibition will open to the public 22 November 2023 — 12 January 2024.
This competition is open to emerging artists aged 18 or over based in the following regions: UK, Europe, Americas, Asia, Australia, and Africa.
A total prize fund of 0,000 GBP will be split between six regional winners, five to receive 2,000 GBP each and one overall winner to receive 10,000 GBP. All artists will exhibit their winning works in a dedicated exhibition at Saatchi Gallery, a recognised authority in contemporary art, where the overall winner will be announced at the end of November 2023.
