Event History

Established in 2010 the biennial New Light Prize Exhibition is fast becoming one of the UK’s largest and most talked about open exhibitions.

What Makes this event different?

A special feature of New Light is that is open to artists at any stage of their creative careers: from emerging to established. New Light celebrates and promotes art in the North of England, supporting both well-known and emerging artists by offering some of the region’s best awards and opportunities.

The copyright of all works submitted for the New Light Prize Exhibition will remain the property of the artist.

Image Usage Rights

New Light is a fabulous opportunity for contemporary artists from the North of England to be part of a high-profile touring prize exhibition which boasts some of the region's largest art awards.

Shortlisted artists will feature in the New Light Prize Exhibition, which will tour three of the North's most prestigious venues: Scarborough Art Gallery, Tullie House Museum and Art Gallery in Carlisle, and The Biscuit Factory, Newcastle. All selected artists will also be given the opportunity to exhibit in the cultural heart of London, at the Bankside Gallery where the previous exhibition attracted over 26,000 visitors.

This is a great chance for artists to attract the interest of the art world. This 5th biennial New Light Prize Exhibition has attracted an impressive line-up of judges: contemporary printmaker and Royal Academician Anne Desmet; renowned art critic, writer and editor of the RA magazine, Sam Phillips; Curator of Art at Huddersfield Art Gallery, Grant Scanlon, and founder of New Light, Annette Petchey.

The New Light Prize Exhibition is open to contemporary artists over 18 years of age who were born, are based, or who have studied in the North of England, i.e. Cumbria, Durham, Lancashire, Northumberland and Yorkshire. Artists are invited to submit wall-hung work in a wide range of media, including print, drawing, digital artwork and painting. There is no maximum size for two-dimensional work, but three-dimensional work should not exceed a depth of 50cm.
