For our fifth year we are excited to announce a brand-new award with support from east London arts centre Rich Mix.
Our New Media Award invites artists whose practice involves the use of technology; examples include moving images, mobile apps, interactive installations, and sound art.
The winner of the award will receive a £1,000 cash prize and a one-month solo show at Rich Mix in autumn 2019. When applying please outline your technical and spatial requirements and the duration of work, if applicable.
This award allows us to extend our support to artists we couldn’t previously. We’re excited that we can now provide opportunities for an even wider range of artists and their practices and create an even more inclusive artist community.
1. Who can enter the New Media Award.
The New Media Award is for artists who use technology within their practice for example, moving images, mobile apps, interactive installations, iPad, coding and sound art.
2. If I submit information for this award will I still be eligible for the other awards like the Employees Choice, Sculpture Prize and Overall Winner in this year’s prize?
As long as it fits with the other criteria your submission will be considered for all the prizes it is eligible for. This is an additional award to the Ashurst Emerging Art Prize so your work will be considered for all of the awards on offer.
3. I don't think a single image summarises my work well, how else can I make sure the judges see it properly?
If you are producing work that is for example sound or moving image please also provide a link to where the judges can see the work in full.
4. My work is made up of multiple elements, how can I show these all together?
You're welcome to submit an install shot or alternatively upload a PDF file to the image section including the different elements. Please note this must still be one artwork.
5. If successful do I have to provide my own equipment when exhibiting the work?
We are aiming, where possible, to provide the equipment necessary to exhibit work. If you have particular kit you use to display the works then this will be incorporated. The curation process will allow you to adapt to the gallery the work will be exhibited in.
6. If selected, do I have to show the work that is shortlisted?
No. You are welcome to develop your ideas and what is to be show supported by our team.
We are open for submissions, and if you enter by 25th November 2018, you will be eligible for detailed written feedback by our team on your submission. See the entry form here.
