Breese / Little Prize for Art Criticism

BREESE LITTLE Prize for Art Criticism Vol IV: Deadline Friday 2nd December 2011

The BREESE LITTLE Prize for Art Criticism was launched in September 2010. The aim of the prize is to support, encourage and provide a platform for young writers of art criticism. Deadlines for the prize will be every quarter with a first prize of £600. The winning submissions will initially be published on BREESE LITTLE’s website.

Submission Guidelines:
– Entrants must be aged between 18 and 26 or in full-time education.
– Submissions should be no more than 750 words.
– Entrants may only submit one article per prize and it should not have been published previously in print or online.
– Five submissions will be shortlisted by BREESE LITTLE before being judged by a figure in the contemporary art world.
– Submissions should address a contemporary visual arts exhibition which has taken place within six months of the submission deadline, either in the UK or internationally.

BREESE LITTLE favours criticism which privileges accessibility without losing analytical bite, which does not mystify with art jargon or compromise content, and which maintains intellectual rigour, strong visual analysis and demonstrates a thorough engagement with contemporary art in general. Please note, writers should not submit reviews of any BREESE LITTLE exhibitions or exhibitions which include artists the gallery work with regularly. If in doubt please contact the organisers before submitting. Gareth Harris, editor-at-large of The Art Newspaper, will be the judge. The deadline for Vol IV of the BREESE LITTLE Prize for Art Criticism is Friday 2nd December 2011 and the winner will be announced on Friday 16th December. Please email submissions to
