Welcome to Charity!

Isle of Man Students Prize

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 the 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 artwork with the most public votes will be awarded the Public Vote Award. Additionally, there will be a final round of judging of the exhibited works by the judges and the top 2 artworks with the highest combined judges’ score will be awarded the 1st and 2nd prize.
The Sovereign Art Foundation Students Prize aims to celebrate the importance of art in the education system and recognise the quality of art that can be produced by students in the Isle of Man. At the same time it also aims to raise funds in aid of a local children’s charity, as well as The Sovereign Art Foundation and its many meaningful projects.
