The Aesthetica Art Prize was launched in 2007, five years after the launch of Aesthetica Magazine, as a way to support the next generation of talent across new visual media. It welcomed both established and emerging practitioners to submit pieces on any theme, celebrating innovative works from a range of media.
The prize attracts thousands of entries each year from across the globe, from countries including Australia, Belgium, China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Norway, Singapore, the UK and the USA. The judging panel has included representatives from BALTIC, Frieze, V&A, and FACT Liverpool as well as gaining wider recognition through Aesthetica’s print and digital channels.
Awards include £5,000 for the Main Prize, £1,000 for the Emerging Prize, as well as publication within the Future Now: 100 Contemporary Artists Anthology, and a chance to participate in the annual Art Prize Exhibition which will run March - June 2022.
