Woon Foundation Art Prize

Due to the impact of COVID-19, The Woon Brothers Foundation, Northumbria University, and BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art have agreed to suspend the Woon Prize 2020. Applications for the Woon Prize 2021 will open again in February 2021. We are delighted to announce that we are revising the eligibility criteria for the 2021 prize. The prize will be open to final year undergraduate Fine Art students, and candidates who graduated from an undergraduate Fine Art programme in 2020.

This communication confirms that the Woon Prize 2020 is now closed for further applications. Full details about the launch of the Woon Prize 2021 will be released in due course. For further enquiries, please contact Dr Solomon Lennox, Head of Department – Arts, Northumbria University:
