Bridgeman Images are excited to announce the Bridgeman Studio Award 2018. Now in its 5th year, Bridgeman Studio Award is the fastest growing contemporary art competition for artists, illustrators, and fine art photographers. Partnering with the Affordable Art Fair in New York and London, this year’s prize is our biggest and best yet!

Our partnership with the Affordable Art Fair continues a legacy of previous competitions where the Bridgeman Studio Award worked with prestigious brands such as HarperCollins and the Wilderness Festival. Winners of the Bridgeman Studio Award have come from all over the world including Japan, Holland, Germany, and England, whilst entries for the competition have been entered from over 100 countries. Many of the artists who enter the Bridgeman Studio Award have also gone on to have successful careers in licensing with Bridgeman Studio, the contemporary art platform for new and emerging artists.

This year’s prize:  £1,500 cash commission for the design of a tote bag, to be sold at Affordable Art Fair worldwide. Also £4,000 worth of exhibition space at the Affordable Art Fair in New York and London.

The Brief…
