ELEPHANT X GRIFFIN ART PRIZE
We are looking for the next big thing! Announcing the FIRST Elephant x Griffin Art Prize; a collaboration between the UK’s premier art prize for recent graduates, Griffin Art Prize, and international contemporary visual culture magazine Elephant.
The Prize will offer to one particularly talented emerging artist a bespoke package to support their practice throughout 2019. Open to UK-based artists practising in all mediums, we are looking for dynamic, committed, emerging artists with the potential to become international stars. Elephant’s motto is ‘Life through Art’ and as such we are looking for artistic practice that engages with the wider issues of the world at large, whether that be through painting, sculpture, installation, film or digital media.
This award will offer a unique platform to take your career to the next level, bringing your work to a new audience across all the Elephant channels (print magazine, online and the new Elephant West space in west London).
The winner will receive:
£ 5,000 cash stipend
£ 2,000 of studio rent within 2019 at a location of choice within the UK
£ 3,000 RRP value of art materials from fine art brands (Winsor & Newton, Liquitex and Conté à Paris)
Professional support and mentoring programme from the Elephant team
