The Catlin Art Prize gives talented young artists who have recently graduated from UK art schools the opportunity to showcase their work professionally and win a significant monetary award towards their future development.
Graduating artists from around the UK are visited and assessed by Art Catlin curator, Justin Hammond, and 40 are invited to feature in The Catlin Guide, an exclusive publication showcasing the most promising new artists in the country.
From the Guide, a small number of artists are selected as finalists for the Prize and are invited to demonstrate their progress by presenting a new body of work at the Catlin Art Prize exhibition, held 12 months on from graduation.
Finalist selection is based on the standard of their work and their potential to make a significant mark in the art world over the course of their early careers.
The winner of the Catlin Art Prize 2013 is Terry Ryu Kim, for her installation, Screening Solution I, II & III. An independent panel of judges including former Turner Prize nominee Dexter Dalwood, art gallery director Ceri Hand and renowned collector Valeria Napoleone selected Terry as the winner who will receive the £5,000 prize.
Visitors to the Catlin Art Prize exhibition selected their favourite artist as part of the Visitor Vote. Votes were cast via the Art Catlin website and a ballot box at the venue. The winner of the Visitor Vote, Juno Calypso, was awarded £2,000.
