The Aesthetica Awards are now open; accepting innovative submissions for the Art Prize, Creative Writing Award and BAFTA-Qualifying Aesthetica Short Film Festival. This year, we launch a new entry platform.
A celebration of excellence in art from across the world, The Aesthetica Art Prize offers both emerging and established practitioners the opportunity to showcase their work to a wider audience through two awards: the Main Art Prize and the Emerging Art Prize. With previous winners including Rachel Ara and David Birkin, it is an essential platform – offering cash prizes, publication and group exhibition at York Art Gallery. We welcome submissions across a range of media, including photography, painting, digital art, sculpture, installation and more.
The Creative Writing Award is an international literary prize that highlights inspiring Poetry and Short Fiction, awarding publication within a widely-read anthology to a shortlist of 60 writers, including a winner from each category. Winners are also presented with further opportunities to expand their literary careers, including £1,000.
Entries are open until 31 August 2019.
