John Moores 2010 call for entries is now open and will run until 19th February 2010.
The John Moores 2010 – Contemporary Painting Prize, which is a biennial event based in The Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool, which was set up in typical Liverpool style by Sir John Moores in concern at London’s increasing domination in the national arts scene. The most important aspect of the competition is that it is open to anyone living in the UK, this means that keen amateurs can compete and ultimately win a prize of £25,000 in a competition that has been entered by artists such as David Hockney and Peter Doig in the past.
The final image has to be submitted by the 5th March 2010.
In 2010 a first prize of £25,000 will be awarded along with four further prizes, each of £2500. In addition, the winner of the popular visitors’ choice prize of £2010, will be announced towards the close of the JM2010 exhibition.
There is an entry fee of £25.
