We’re on the lookout for the brightest emerging and mid-career artists on the international scene.

This year,  Rise Art is asking artists to submit new works that engage with and tackle the theme of ‘EDGES’.

If you think you have what our judges might be looking for - a visionary eye, a thrilling idea and accomplished craft - then you have until 4th February 2019 to submit your PDF proposal, along with an up to date artist CV.  

Finalists will be notified by the 15th February 2019 and will be expected to complete their proposed work by the beginning of April, ready to be showcased in the Rise Art Prize finalist exhibition mid-May.

The overall winner of the competition will be announced during the exhibition week and will n be crowned the Rise Art Prize Artist of the Year  2019, receiving a £20,000 cash prize together with one year's practical curatorial and commercial support.

Please note that l proposed artworks must engage with the theme. They need to be new, unique works conceived and produced expressly for the competition. With this in mind, we encourage artists practising across all mediums, particularly video and audio, to apply. Please note that this time round we aren’t able to accept performance art.
