John Moores Painting Prize 2018 – selected artists

Steve Burden,  Joanne Hummel-Newell and Orlanda Broom have all successfully progressed to stage 2 of judging for the prestigious John Moores Painting Prize Exhibition. The prize was launched in 1957 with the aim of showcasing “the best and most vital work being done today throughout the country”.

The Prize is celebrating 60 years in 2018 – it will be the 30th exhibition since its launch in 1957, there is a first prize of £25,000 and four prizes of £2,500. These are awarded by the jury. Artists will be notified on Monday 9 April if their work has been selected for the John Moores Painting Prize 2018 Exhibition – when 50 exhibiting artists will be selected from over 2,500 entrants. Previous winners include Peter Doig and Jon Hoyland.

We wish them all the best with the next stage of the competition – view and buy available work by all 3 of these artists via the links below – all work is available for purchase via an interest free OwnArt loan (UK Residents) – select OwnArt at the checkout.

“The John Moores is one of the most prestigious art competitions in the UK and winning the Junior Prize in 1961 is one of the achievements of which I am most proud.” – Sir Peter Blake, artist.

“[The John Moores Painting Prize is] the Oscar of the British painting world” – Sir Norman Rosenthal, curator and former exhibitions secretary at the Royal Academy.

“…catch up with innovative developments in a traditional medium” – Rachel Campbell-Johnston, The Times.
