Cash Prize
This year’s prize asks artists to creatively respond to the theme Regeneration.

As part of a shared mission in making art, culture, and creativity accessible to everyone, this 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. Full entry information below.

Regeneration: There is no art on a dead planet

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

A total prize fund of 20,000 GBP (approx. 24,900 USD) 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
