The Sovereign Art Foundation (SAF) Students Prizes are annual awards that celebrate the importance of art in the education system and recognise the quality of artworks produced by secondary-school students across the world. The first Students Prize was established in 2012 in Hong Kong, followed by additional Students Prizes in Bahrain, Guernsey, the Isle of Man, Malta, Mauritius, Portugal and Singapore. The aims and objectives are to:
Recognise the work of talented secondary-school level art students around the world and exhibit their work to a wide and engaged audience.
Celebrate the importance of art in the education system, rewarding successful secondary-school art programmes to the benefit of a greater number of students.
Engage with local organisations that share our aims of promoting arts in the community and encouraging cultural development.
Unite all regional winners in an annual Global Students Prize exhibition, showcasing their talent on an international stage and facilitating cultural exchange.
