Butterbiggens prize in painting
The Butterbiggens Prize is an experiment to see if a Art Foundation can be productive on a micro scale. We provide tiny grants for artists in the form of fast food gift certificates. Like online Galleries, we function as a showcase for contemporary established and emerging artists, in which the selection process will eventually establish its own prestige. Every month a British painter will be nominated, and receive a small financial award, as well as a temporary show case on this website. In the future we may launch more ambitious programming.
We define British as anyone working or living in the UK, and Painting as broadly as you can justify in the description of your piece.
Micro Fellowship for British Painters, juried by a group of Scottish Art Students.
To apply, send and email to firstname.lastname@example.org with as many as three photos of ONE painting, completed in the last three years. Incude a CV or bio if you want, and also a word file with the title, date, size and medium of the painting.
There is no fee to submit.
submissions close Nov 22 and a winner will be announced by Nov 28th.
