Welcome to Charity!

Guernsey Students Prize

The Sovereign Art Foundation Students Prize was established in Guernsey in 2015 and seeks to recognise and celebrate the artwork of local students aged 11-18. It bolsters fledgling artists’ careers by giving them confidence and showing them that art is valued by the community.

As well as inviting schools to nominate students, the Prize also invites students aged 15-18 to independently enter a separate piece of their own artwork. This enables students to explore creative ideas that might not fit with their school coursework themes and develop these ideas over the summer holidays.

In 2019 we are inviting students to put the artwork they enter into the competition up for auction. Proceeds of the auction will be split 50:50 between the artist and the Sovereign Art Foundation’s charitable activities.

Students wishing to be nominated by their school should contact their art department. Students who wish to enter an Individual Entry can register via this link
