Young artists contest global prizes


Two students from Guernsey have made a shortlist of 14 youngsters vying for global art prizes.

Olivia Roze of The Guernsey Institute and Timothy Neal of Elizabeth College will showcase their art alongside students from Gibraltar, Hong Kong, the Isle of Man, London, Malta, Gozo and Mauritius in the final round of the 2022 Sovereign Art Foundation Global Students’ Prize.

They made the shortlist after winning the local round of the competition. They will now compete in an online exhibition with grants of £4,300 available to the overall winners of global prizes awarded by a panel of judges and a public vote.

The online exhibition runs until 31 January. The panel of judges includes Chilean visual artist Catalina Swinburn and the Chief Executive of the Design Museum in London, Tim Marlow. Votes for the public prize can be cast online until 18:00 on 28 January.

The Sovereign Art Foundation, launched in Hong Kong in 2003, is a not-for-profit organisation that promotes contemporary art talent through international art prizes and raises funds for various charitable programmes.

The Sovereign Art Foundation Students’ Prizes run in 10 countries. They are designed to celebrate the importance of art in the education system by identifying talented young artists and rewarding successful art programmes to the benefit of a greater number of students.

Organisers say the global competition will enable cultural exchange between nations, showcasing artworks by the most talented and promising students from across the world.
