Call for Artists: Young Masters Art Prize 2019

Contemporary artists working in any medium and from anywhere in the world are invited to apply for the 2019 edition of the Young Masters Art Prize, and for the Young Masters Maylis Grand Ceramics Prize. This year marks the 10th anniversary of this international initiative.

The Young Masters Art Prize is a not-for-profit initiative founded in 2009 by Gallerist Cynthia Corbett to give a platform to both emerging and established artists who pay homage to the skill and innovation of the Old Masters and art of the past. Since its launch in 2009, the Prize has established itself as a significant international project and has attracted critical and public acclaim. In 2014, the Young Masters Maylis Grand Ceramics Prize was introduced to celebrate excellence in contemporary ceramics.

Artists applying for both the Young Masters Art Prize and Young Masters Maylis Grand Ceramics Prize must show an exceptional understanding of their creative medium alongside an awareness of the art of the past. For the ceramics prize, they must also demonstrate an awareness of the heritage of ceramic craft, which can be interpreted in the broadest international sense. The closing date for entry is 31 May 2019.

We’re looking for artists who show originality, skill and imagination in response to the art of the past. You can interpret this as widely as you like. You have the chance to explain your interpretation in your artist statement.
