The John Ruskin Prize 2015: CALL FOR ARTISTS


Organised by the Campaign for Drawing in collaboration with the Guild of St George and The Pilgrim Trust. 

We are delighted to announce the return of The John Ruskin Prize open to all artists 18 and over living in the UK.  In 2015, we are inviting submissions in a range of 2D media in response to the theme: ‘Recording Britain Now: Society’.

With generous support this year from The Pilgrim Trust, and a renewed partnership with The Guild of St.George has enabled us to increase the winning prize fund to £5,000. We are also thrilled to introduce two new prizes: The runner up prize of £2,000 and a student prize of £1,000.

The John Ruskin Prize was founded by the Guild of St George in recognition of John Ruskin’s values.  Ruskin, especially in his latter years, fervently questioned the social and political truisms of his day.  Now in it's third incarnation, The John Ruskin Prize invites entries from artists to observe, record and comment on contemporary society through their work.
