Stage 1

The initial submission should be a single document (PDF) of a maximum of three images (300dpi) of the individual work, with a supporting statement (maximum 300 words), submitted on or before 29th March 2017. 

From these entries a shortlist will be made.

Stage 2

The Astaire Art Prize Committee, composed of faculty and guest judges, will review the physical work of the shortlisted entries and supporting material in college and recommend the winning entry on 7th April 2017.

A prize of £3,000 will be awarded to the winning entry, as well as two runner-up prizes of £750.
