The Threadneedle Prize
The £30,000 Threadneedle Prize is the UK’s leading showcase for paintings and sculptures that promote the practice of representational art, but challenge its language and assumptions.
The Prize encourages both experienced and emerging artists to submit fresh and intriguing works that are strong and topical observations on the world. With £46,000 of prize money to be won, The Threadneedle Prize is one of the largest art prizes in the UK.
All works selected for the exhibition are sourced through an open competition. The winner of The Threadneedle Prize will be chosen by our panel of three selectors. All works in the exhibition are eligible to win the £10,000 Visitors’ Choice prize, awarded by visitors to the exhibition. One artist may still win both prizes, for a total of £40,000.
The Threadneedle Prize is supported by Mall Galleries, which provide a national focal point for contemporary figurative art by living artists working in the UK. Our aim is to promote and encourage the study and practice of the visual arts by showcasing contemporary works in different media and subject themes.
