The SOLO Award 2016


The SOLO Award 2016

independent thinking
​going it alone
taking risks
bucking the trend
standing out from the crowd

The SOLO Award is an annual contemporary art prize established by WW in 2012, which recognises independent thinking, going it alone and taking risks. It is open to artists of any age, working in any medium. The winner receives a cash prize and a solo exhibition at the London Art Fair. 2016 sees the prize money doubled and the award open to international artists for the first time. The 2016 call for entries officially launches at the London Art Fair on 19th January 2016 and simultaneously online.

The selection panel looks for artists who are not afraid to stand out from the crowd, artists with the strength and foresight to buck the trend and create work that is truly avant-garde. With a focus that stretches further than new graduates, the SOLO Award recognises that artists can be producing outstanding work at any age and any stage of their career and therefore welcomes submissions from anyone aged 18 – 108.

Prize: Solo exhibition at London Art Fair 2017 + £2000 cash
Deadline for applications: 12pm midday 18 April 2016
Open to International artists of any age, working in any medium
