New art prize


Deadline: Friday 18 May 2007

To raise the profile of mental and emotional health within the arts world and to raise funds for the Samaritans, artists are being invited to submit works to the new Grieve+Samaritans Art Prize. The Grieve+Samaritans Art Prize is a major new prize which aims to raise the profile of mental health within the creative community. The prize is sponsored by the Alan and Karen Grieve Charitable Trust and is supported by Christie's. Artists are invited to submit works which relate directly or indirectly to one of the following Samaritans themes; communication and openness; feelings and emotions; depression and recovery from depression; and loneliness, distress or despair. The winner will receive £2,000 and two runners up £1,000 each. The closing date for submissions is the 18th May 2007.
