“Finding inspiration everywhere”

Paul Smith’s Foundation and Winsor & Newton are partnering to launch a new art prize in painting and drawing. Six winning artists will be selected from a free-to-enter Open Call, chosen by a notable, local industry representative who has the networks and experience to develop an artist’s professional practice.

Each winner will receive up to £1,000 of materials from Winsor & Newton and £1,000 from Paul Smith’s Foundation to make a new piece of work that responds to the theme of “Finding inspiration everywhere”. These works will then be exhibited for sale in a Paul Smith store. Artists will keep 100% of the proceeds from a sale of their work and are invited to attend an intimate dinner with the judges at Mount St Restaurant in October, in London, hosted by Sir Paul Smith. Travel and accommodation expenses are generously funded by Winsor & Newton. Artists will also be featured in a short film, commissioned by Winsor & Newton, to be released in November 2024.

In year one, the prize will take place in London, Paris, New York, Los Angeles, Tokyo and Hong Kong. A winning artist will be selected for each city.
