Beers.Lambert Contemporary announces a new award for emerging artists worldwide: the First Annual Beers.Lambert Award for Emerging Art is a prize awarded to up to 8 emerging, contemporary artists working in all disciplines and open to artists internationally. Unlike other awards that present one overall winner with a lump monetary sum, Beers.Lambert aims to assist as many artists as possible by awarding artists based on category, and judging artists apart from others working within the same discipline, and not against those working outside of one's particular discipline. In this regard, up to 8 winners will each walk away with a monetary prize and become part of the growing award-package (further details of our partners and the full-award package will be released shortly). 

As one of its primary operating initiatives, Beers.Lambert's artist-support program has always believed in nurturing emerging artists and celebrating excellence in emerging contemporary art. Now, our newest initiative coincides with our gallery relocation to its brand new space on Baldwin Street at Old Street in the heart of the East London. The Beers.Lambert Award for Emerging Artwas born and devised as a method to recognize outstanding achievement and/or promise in the arts and to present emerging artists with a unique exhibition opportunity in London, and offer international exposure to under-represented artists to help them succeed.

The award is intended to give back to the artistic community and reward and support emerging artists regardless of age, gender, ethnic background and/or geographical location or proximity to the UK's vibrant art-scene. Furthermore, the award was established to acknowledge and celebrate an outstanding group of artists in each of the primary artistic disciplines by offering (monetary and non-monetary) recognition for international emerging artists who can be seen as shaping the direction of contemporary art through commitment and dedication to their artistic practice. The award will consider criteria such as progression, innovation, excellence and ‘general talent’ in 4 predominating artistic fields: 1) painting and drawing; 2) photography, collage and 2D; 3) sculpture, installation and 3d; 4) and a final multidisciplinary category that acknowledges video art, performance, technology-based and/or new-media, as well as other forms that may defy classification.
