Welcome to Charity!
The Sovereign Art Foundation Students Prize was established in the Isle of Man in 2017 and seeks to inspire and reward young artists in the community. It aims to encourage cultural development and celebrate the importance of art in the education system by recognising the quality of artwork that can be produced by talented, young students.
Entrants must be enrolled at secondary school and be nominated by their teacher.
All submitted artworks are viewed online by a judging panel of local art professionals, who select a shortlist of Finalists. The Finalists’ works are exhibited and the judges attend for a second round of voting, in person, to choose their winner. In parallel, the public are invited to vote on their favourite piece (online and at the exhibition). Prizes are awarded to the winning artists, and their schools (where applicable), in the following categories:
- Judges’ Prize Winner
- Judges’ Runner-up
- Public Prize Winner
There will also be fundraising activities in aid of the Sovereign Art Foundation and a local charity. This may include the sale of merchandise, a charity raffle and auctioning of the winning artworks with permission from the artists.
