Are you curious about art and enjoy expressing your own ideas and opinions?

The ARTiculation Prize is an annual event designed to promote the appreciation and discussion of art. The competition seeks to engage sixth form students, regardless of background or experience, with art and to develop their confidence and ability to express their opinions, thoughts and conclusions. Each student is invited to deliver a ten minute presentation to an interested audience about a work of art, artefact or architecture of their choice. Adjudicators are asked to assess each presentation as a whole, looking at content, structure and delivery.

In 2014 the prize is being held at eight regional venues. A student will be selected from each heat to speak at the finals, which is part of the ARTiculation Conference at the University of Cambridge. This conference is open to all sixth form students and is designed to encourage debate and engagement with the arts. Limited student travel bursuries are available and must be applied for at the time of booking.

The Saatchi Gallery will host one of the two London heats on Monday 13 January 2014, 3.30 - 6pm. The adjudicator will be Jill Cook, Deputy Keeper Palaeolithic & Mesolithic material, British Museum.

Closing date for application is Friday 18th October 2013. Successful applicants will be informed on Friday 1 November 2013. For more information please contact francesca@saatchigallery.com or you can download all literature on the event from the Roche Court Education Trust website http://rochecourteducationaltrust.co.uk/articulation-prize/

Molly Nickson winner of ARTiculation 2013 said, "The ARTiculation Prize really goes to show that anyone can appreciate art and that you don't have to be studying art or be an artist in order to appreciate it. This whole process has been a really good opportunity for people to focus on a piece of art for art's sake and for me it's been more like an exchange of ideas between entrants rather than a competition. I'm really looking forward to using my Art Pass over the next year to see as much art as I can!"
