Greater Manchester Arts Prize For Contemporary Visual Art

In 2016 Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce was delighted to launch a new annual arts prize.

Now in our third year, the 2018 competition is now closed.  The prize was open to all semi-professional and professional contemporary artists.

The prize has been created to provide a platform for contemporary visual artists to become connected to the region’s business community, help provide opportunities for artists to be recognised on a national/international scale and help retain artistic talent in our area.

We are delighted to be holding our GM Arts Prize Exhibition at Stockport War Memorial Art Gallery.

The shortlisted works will be on display to the public between Saturday 12th May 2018 to Friday 8th June 2018.
