Greater Manchester Arts Prize For Contemporary Visual Art

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

Soon to be in our fourth year, the 2019 competition will open in February 2019.  The prize will be 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 Bolton Museum and Art Gallery

The shortlisted works will be on display to the public between Thursday 6th June 2019 and Friday 5th July 2019.
