WELCOME TO THE HOLLY BUSH EMERGING WOMAN PAINTER PRIZE
Championing Women Artists
At the Holly Bush Emerging Woman Painter Prize we champion women artists and try to play our part in correcting the imbalance in the art world. Did you know top London galleries exhibit more work by male artists than female and that their work sells for more than their female counterparts? Women are also under represented in the major roles in the art world and paid less.
We are here to help change that!
HOLLY BUSH EMERGING WOMAN PAINTER PRIZE AT A GLANCE
Each year we hold an art prize open to all emerging women artists living and working in the UK. Then we choose 22 artists who we feel have the potential to excel in the art world. Our top artist receives a cash prize and other benefits. There are other smaller prizes for runner-up winners. This year for the first time we also have The Lady Petchey Sculpture Prize.
SUPPORTING WOMEN ARTISTS
The Holly Bush Prize has proven a great place to connect artists, not just with each other but also with art professionals. You come along as competitors and leave as friends.
At the Holly Bush Emerging Woman Painter Prize, we know how important it is to support women in their careers. We are dedicated to helping you in every way we can and empower you to achieve success.
We are dedicated to celebrating and promoting fine art created by women.
Through our prize, we offer women artists the opportunity to exhibit and sell their works. We also vigorously promote the work of our entrants, finalist and winners through social media.
“Whether you succeed or not is irrelevant, there is no such thing. Making your unknown known is the important thing.”
