Threadneedle Prize


You can help shape the future of contemporary art


The Threadneedle Prize is one of the UK’s largest prizes for contemporary painting and sculpture.   You can help shape the future of contemporary art by submitting online NOW to this influential annual Prize and exhibition, held at the Mall Galleries in central London.

In addition to the £30,000 Threadneedle Prize, all works selected for the exhibition qualify for a further £10,000 Visitors’ Choice Award.

The competition is open to all artists working in the UK and Continental Europe who use figurative and representational art as a starting point for their work.  You may submit up to three works, completed since 1 January 2012, including paintings, sculptures, original prints, drawings and mixed media installations.  Read more about what our selectors hope will be submitted by clicking here.

Works that have been selected for other prizes or competitions in the UK or continental Europe are not eligible to enter.

This year, increased expenditure on media and promotional activity will raise the profile of this leading Prize and exhibition still further.  Don’t miss out on this opportunity to participate in shaping the future of contemporary art.  For details of how to enter your work online and what to submit click here.
