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. Artwork of high calibre were submitted, which is testament to the quality of young talent on the island.  To find out more about previous winners and finalists, please visit the Sovereign Trust (Isle of Man) Limited Facebook page @SovereignTrustIsleOfManLimited.

We are now inviting teachers from secondary schools and colleges in the Isle of Man to nominate three of the school’s 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 on 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.

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.
