Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize 2019
Call for Entries
Deadline: 26 June 2019, 5pm
Selected from original drawings, the Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize has an established reputation for promoting, celebrating, and championing excellence in contemporary drawing practice through this open exhibition dedicated to drawing. This year’s selection panel will comprise Chantal Joffe RA, artist; Andrew Nairne OBE, Director of Kettle’s Yard, University of Cambridge; and Dorothy Price, Reader in History of Art at the University of Bristol, and Editor of Art History. Artists selected for the Prize will be eligible for a range of awards totalling £27,000 including the Working Drawing Prize that this year has increased in value to £2,000. Following the success of the first Evelyn Williams Drawing Award in 2017, the Evelyn Williams Trust will again generously support an award of £10,000: this will be awarded to one of the 2019 shortlisted artists to support the development of a new solo exhibition.
