About the Liverpool Art Prize

The Liverpool Art Prize is a new annual exhibition and award for artists from or based in Merseyside. Created by artinliverpool.com, this inaugural year’s event evolved from a campaign to urge the public to nominate Merseyside artists for the Turner Prize being held in Liverpool this year. Visitors to artinliverpool.com were invited to nominate local artists. Unlike the Turner, there is no upper age limit, many nominations were received. Details and images were displayed on the artinliverpool.com website for the public and fellow artists to view, comment upon and give ratings. A panel of judges then selected a short-list of 6.

City of Albany Art Prize website

The City of Albany Art Prize is an annual acquisitive prize open to all Australian artists for a two dimensional painting. With a first prize of $25 000, The City of Albany Art Prize aims to attract entries from artists of excellence from throughout Australia. Artworks entered into this art prize are to be substantially painted, meaning that other media such as drawing (pencil, pastel, charcoal), printmaking, and collage can be included but only if paint remains the dominant medium. The artwork must be able to be hung (pinning or another method of direct attachment to the wall is not acceptable). Photography and sculpture are not accepted. This prize is proudly sponsored by the Jack Family Charitable Trust and presented by the City of Albany. The winning artwork will become part of the City of Albany Art Collection. Entries are to be submitted on CD and will be assessed by a panel of three judges who are highly knowledgeable of the visual arts scene in Australia. Thirty artworks will be selected for the exhibition in March 2008 at the Vancouver Arts Centre, Albany, Western Australia.

Introduction The village of Newtonmore, in the Scottish Highlands, some 64 miles north of Perth and 46 miles south of Inverness, is renowned as having the most outstanding record in the Scottish sport of Shinty in the history of the game. The community is inextricably bonded to the sport, and the sport to the community, In developing a project to re-landscape the Newtonmore Village Square, Newtonmore and Vicinity Community Council, in partnership with Newtonmore Business Association, have decided that a key feature of the square will be a sculpture representing the sport of shinty. This invitation requests responses as to design, materials, execution, timescale and costing for the production of such a work. Brief The village of Newtonmore is a traditional highland village - most buildings are of grey stone construction, although some are harled. The re-landscaped village square will be designed using raised beds built of matching stone, echoing the current design of the war memorial garden on the opposite side of the street, in an attempt to reinforce the identity of the square as the centre of the village. Lighting, where used, is envisaged to be soft, and underlit. The sculpture, which should be broadly life-size, will occupy a space at the right hand front corner of the space available. The traditional nature of the village, and the historic tradition of the sport as 'the Sport of the Gael' inevitably mean that any sculpture should be strictly representational and in no sense abstracted. Although it is desired that one of the players represented (if more than one is included in any design), should, through use of relief or textural effects, suggest the Newtonmore playing strip, the completed sculpture should not identifiably be of any particular player or players. Photographs of action from the sport of shinty are available in abundance by going to http://www.shinty.com/pix.htm, from which page, links lead to several hundred photographs taken over the last three years. Who may enter Established artists and sculptors, students attending colleges of art in the United Kingdom, or anyone who can demonstrate the ability to complete the project to the budget and timescale they propose is eligible to enter.
