“The new Contemporary British Painting Prize is a brilliant new initiative that holds up a mirror to the wealth of practice and exciting talent alive in the UK painting scene today.” 

Kath Wood, Founding Director of Firstsite, Curator and Arts Consultant

The Contemporary British Painting Prize

Due to continuing uncertainty surrounding Covid-19, we have reluctantly decided not to hold the Contemporary British Painting Prize this year. We realise that this is disappointing news, but we believe that as long as public safety is at risk it is the responsible thing to do.

Please continue to watch this space for our announcement for next year, and in the meantime you can follow us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook for regular painting news, Painting of the Day #paintingoftheday and more painting-related items of interest.

Our best wishes, from all of us at Contemporary British Painting.
