The Sunny Art Prize is the first program outside of museological institutions that envisions the decentralisation of the art world as a way to broaden the horizons of both artists and the communities they engage with. The Prize is organised annually by the Sunny Art Centre in London, and offers a selection of thirty artists the opportunity to take part in international activities, including exhibitions and a residency.
One of the most inclusive and diverse open submission prizes in London, the Sunny Art Prize offers unique exposure for both emerging and established artists to an audience spanning two continents. Created around the Sunny Art Centre’s unparalleled links between London, Beijing, Guangzhou and Macau, the prize winners will not only enjoy a month-long residency in China, but also the opportunity to exhibit both in our central London gallery and in prestigious galleries in China. A £6,000 total cash prize will be split between the first three winning artists.
