Broomhill National Sculpture Prize 2013
£15,000 Prize Fund
The Broomhill National Sculpture Prize is an annual competition set up by the Broomhill Art and Sculpture Foundation to provide an exciting challenge for new and emerging UK based sculptors.
“The National Sculpture Prize presents a rare opportunity for artists. With a brief to inspire ambition and experimentation, the Prize not only provides funding for ten sculptors to realise their proposals, but includes the curatorial support and enthusiasm of the whole team at Broomhill.” • Kate Jago, NSP 2012 Judge and editor of Proof Magazine.
Ten UK based sculptors selected by a top judging panel were given the challenge of exhibiting in the National Sculpture Prize Exhibition, in a bid to win the 2013 NSP title.
Congratulations to this year’s winners!

The final ten sculptures are now on display at Broomhill. Open Mon–Sun, 11:00–16:00.
