The Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize is celebrating its 25th annual exhibition in 2020. In this anniversary year, they have announced two changes to the Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize as follows:
- The exhibition and awards will be open to applications by emerging, mid-career and established artists and makers from the UK, and internationally; and
- The Working Drawing Award, will have an online entry process only and a dedicated expert selection panel, alongside the main entry process and selection panel for the Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize.
In the light of the COVID-19 pandemic, there will be a two-stage selection process for Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize 2020. If you wish to enter please register and upload images of your works online.
The Selection Panel will choose a longlist of works from the online entries which will then be required to be submitted in July 2020 for a final selection process at Trinity Buoy Wharf.
The annual exhibition of around 65 drawings is selected by a panel of distinguished selectors. There will be a separate display of the Working Drawing Award included within the overall exhibition. The Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize 2020 exhibition will be launched at Trinity Buoy Wharf in London in September 2020 before touring to venues across the UK. A fully illustrated publication will be produced to accompany the exhibition. Shortlisted artists and makers will be invited to the Exhibition Launch and Awards Announcement at Trinity Buoy Wharf, London on 23 September 2020.
