Northern Futures to seek emerging art talent

11th March 2010

A new award will recognise emerging artists working in the north of England.

The Arts Council explained that the Northern Futures competition seeks to highlight the achievements of those aged between 21 and 40 in four areas - fine art, fashion, film and 3D design.

Judging panels for the award will be drawn from a range of organisations such as the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, British Film Institute Southbank, the Baltic Gallery and the British Fashion Council.

From July 28th to September 3rd, the prize winners and runners-up will be exhibited at The Civic arts venue in Barnsley.

Patrick Murphy, director of Northern Futures, commented: 'One of the main reasons for the creation of the Northern Futures awards was to celebrate and acknowledge creativity in the north of England.'

He added that the north has already given the world some of its leading artists, such as Henry Moore, David Hockney, Vivienne Westwood, Damien Hirst and Danny Boyle.

In January, Manchester sound experimentalist Pavel Buchler won the 2010 Northern Art Prize, seeing off competition from pencil artist Rachel Goodyear, filmmaker Matt Stokes and video art duo Nick Crowe and Ian Rawlinson.
