The Sovereign Art Foundation Students Prize launched in the Isle of Man for the first time in 2017 and the response was overwhelmingly positive. Artworks of high calibre were submitted, which is testament to the quality of young talent on the island.
All secondary schools and colleges in the Isle of Man are invited to nominate their best artworks produced by students within the current academic year. Students who are interested in participating should approach their teachers for more information. All artworks are assessed by a judging panel who will then shortlist 12 finalists.
The finalists’ works will then be on display at a public exhibition in the Isle of Man. During this time, the public is invited to vote for their favourite piece and the top 3 artworks with the most public votes will be awarded the top 3 prizes. Additionally, an artwork with the highest combined judges’ score will be awarded a Judges prize.
