Aesthetica Art Prize

The Aesthetica Art Prize is hosted by Aesthetica Magazine, an internationally recognised art and culture publication. Aesthetica’s editorial combines dynamic content with compelling critical debate, attracting a high-profile, culturally aware audience. Distinguished by its beautiful design and stunning images, the magazine engages with the arts both in the UK, Europe and further a field.

The Aesthetica Art Prize is open to all artists internationally. There are no age requirements for the Aesthetica Art Prize and no formal qualifications needed. Art does not need to have been exhibited previously and previous exhibitions do not preclude your work from selection but work submitted must be available for an exhibition in the Spring 2021.

The longlist of artists is 100 and there is a shortlist of 8. Shortlisted artists are invited to participate in the exhibition. Shortlisted and longlisted artists will be published in the Anthology.

The Aesthetica Art Prize is a juried prize. Judges will select an overall winner from four shortlisted artists. The four shortlisted artists will each be selected from a different category in the prize.

Prize categories:

  • Photographic & Digital Art
  • Three Dimensional Design & Sculpture
  • Painting & Drawing
  • Installation & Performance
