Threadneedle Prize shortlist unveiled

8th September 2011

The seven-strong shortlist for the 2011 Threadneedle Prize, one of the most prestigious awards in the arts world, has been announced.

Women dominate the shortlist for this year's award, given each year to a painting or sculpture that 'promotes representational art', with Howard Dyke the only male candidate for White Burka.

The shortlist comprises Georgina Amos' Open Lid, Everything in its Right Place by Sarah R Key and Nadine Mahoney's Anon Series (4).

Henrietta Simson's Bad Government (After Lorenzetti), Laura Smith's Knife and Birch in Space, 2010 by Amy Stephens are the remaining contenders for the GBP 25,000.

Each of the works will be displayed at the Threadneedle exhibition at the Mall Galleries in central London between September 22nd and October 8th, where members of the public will have the chance to vote for their favourite piece.

The judging panel has already decided the winner of the award, with the public vote being used to determine the runner-up.

The winner of the prize will be announced on October 5th, with the second-placed work receiving GBP 10,000 and the five remaining runners up each being given GBP 1,000.
