NEW SCULPTURE PRIZE

The Saatchi Gallery has launched a new art prize that creates a platform for the recognition of sculptural innovation - The Saatchi Gallery Sculpture at School Prize. Schools from the UK are now invited to submit sculpture entries separately for 2010.

Initiated in February 2003, Michele Bowman created Sculpture4Kids with the vision that sculpture should play a greater role in the school curriculum by encouraging art departments to participate in a nationwide sculpture competition.

The Saatchi Gallery took Sculpture4Kids under its umbrella in October 2009 to open the competition to a wider range of schools. Entrants for The Saatchi Gallery Sculpture at School Prize will now gain the opportunity to be shown at the Saatchi Gallery as part of the Saatchi Gallery/Sunday Telegraph annual competition.

The new Sculpture competition will focus on a theme or topic which all entries should be inspired by. For 2010 entrants, the theme is Through the Looking Glass. Images of entries should be submitted online here.

Michele Bowman will be chairing the panel of judges from the Saatchi Gallery/Sunday Telegraph Schools Online Competition to select an overall winning school from the Sculpture Section at the end of next year. The school of the overall winner will receive £1000 prize money to spend on their art department. The winning pupil will receive £250 and 2 runner ups will be awarded £100 each
