Broomhill National Sculpture Prize 2013
£15,000 Prize Fund
The Broomhill Art and Sculpture Foundation launched the Broomhill National Sculpture Prize with an annual prize fund of £15,000 in 2009 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 Judge and editor of Proof Magazine.
Ten UK based sculptors selected by a top judging panel have been given the challenge of exhibiting in the National Sculpture Prize Exhibition, in a bid to win the 2013 NSP title. Each of the ten finalists have a £1,000 budget and three months to turn their proposed idea into an inspiring finished piece for the Summer Exhibition. The final ten sculptures will be on display at Broomhill from 01 Jun 2013.
