  • Personal details: the candidate’s full name, postal address, e-mail address and telephone number
  • Biographical information
  • A brief note presenting the artist’s approach
  • A good-quality identity photo
  • A selection of one to three recent works, not necessarily in the same medium, with a good-quality image of each work to enable the selection committee to form as accurate an idea as possible of the candidate’s practice.

Candidates working exclusively in the medium of video are advised to provide a link to a video hosting site such as Vimeo or YouTube or to their own site where the video can be viewed.The entry may be written in the candidate’s first language if this is easier.Candidates must not send original artworks to the gallery.

Entry fee

The entry fee pays for the time spent examining the entries by all the members of the selection committee. Talent is independent of age; we hope to receive submissions from artists young and not so young who have real personality and whose works will delight us.
