The West Prize will be awarded to ten international emerging artists in 2008. The prize will award $100,000 in acquisitions between the finalists and host a finalist TEN exhibition with accompanying publication. A grand prize winner will be chosen from among the finalists to receive a $25,000 cash prize in addition to a West Collection Acquisition.
Visit The West Collection's website for more information.
What I think is really different about this prize is that you can view all the submissions online, so you should definitely apply, if only to grant your work the chance of greater exposure. . .
ALSO P.S.: THE SUBMISSION FORM IS TOTALLY EASY AND ALL ONLINE. YOU HAVE NO EXCUSE!!! ENTER!!!!!!
