Still a relatively new award, The John Ruskin Prize has gained a reputation as one of the most exciting and challenging multi-disciplinary art prizes in the UK. Open to all artists over 18 working in the UK, the Prize promotes and give exposure to the work of emerging artists using a wide range of media and techniques.
The Prize’s emphasis on observation reflects John Ruskin’s belief that drawing helps us to see the world more clearly, and therefore take greater heed of its fragility.
Open to interpretation, this year’s theme is Hand & Eye: Master of All Trades in the Eye of Jack.
Application Deadline: Monday April 24th 2017
Prizes: 1st Prize (£3000) | 2nd Prize (£1000) | Student Prize (£1000)

The three winners will be announced at the private view in June 2017. All prize finalists will also have the opportunity to be included in the online Ruskin Editions collection.
