Details: The SOLO Award™ is an annual contemporary art prize open to artists of all ages, working in all media. The finalists are exhibited in a group show each spring and the overall winner receives a cash prize and a solo exhibition at the London Art Fair each January.
The SOLO Award is an entirely not-for-profit project, now in its 6th year. Aimed at supporting the careers of emerging and mid-career artists, the award broadens audiences by presenting the winners’ ambitious and creatively risk-taking solo projects within the established commercial context of the London Art Fair, which attracts an annual 30K+ visitors. By bridging the non-profit and commercial art worlds, and involving a respected selection panel of art world professionals, the SOLO Award is a unique, independent prize for artists who feel they are demonstrating strong potential or are at a pivotal point in their careers.
