The Haworth Prize is a brand new art prize for young artists from the North of England creating works inspired by their surroundings, sponsored by The Haworth Trust.
The Prize is for artists aged 35 or under, who live and work in Cumbria, Northumberland, Durham, Tyne and Wear, Yorkshire, Lancashire, Merseyside, Greater Manchester, Cheshire, whose paintings, drawings or print-making depict the landscape or the towns of the North of England.
Selected from 100 submissions, the 12 shortlisted works will be on display as part of The New English Art Club’s annual exhibition at Mall Galleries near Trafalgar Square between 18 and 27 June 2015.
The winning work will be announced at the Private View on 17 June 2015, and awarded a cheque for £4,000.
The Haworth Trust has established The Haworth Prize to further their charitable activities, which focus on providing support and grants for artists and musicians from the North of England at the start of their careers.
The Prize builds on The New English Art Club’s tradition of painting and drawing from observation and of supporting emerging artists.
