Open Contemporary Young Artist Award
19th May - 20th August

Our Open Contemporary Young Artist Award profiles young up and coming talent from across the UK. Launched earlier this year, this national open call was a unique opportunity for artists aged 35 and under, working in a range of media, to submit work for inclusion in a group exhibition at The Biscuit Factory. From more than 600 entries, we have curated a shortlist of 27 artists who will exhibit with us this summer. 


The overall winner, announced in July, will receive a cash prize of £1000 and the opportunity for a solo show later in the year. We invite the public to vote for their People's Choice Winner, who will be awarded £250. All work in the exhibition will be available to purchase, with 10 per cent of the proceeds going back to The Biscuit Factory Foundation to contribute to the facilitation of future arts projects.
