Artists encouraged to enter Charman Prize

The 10th Biennial Charman Prize (Photograph supplied)

Artists will have a chance to win $10,000 this year through Masterworks Museum of Bermuda Art's 10th Biennial Charman Prize.

The theme of this year’s prize is “Bermuda, Our Island, in a Changing World” and encourages participants to reflect on the difficulties of Covid-19 and how they have shaped the world.

The art gallery has opened up registration to residents and Bermudians, as well as Bermudian artists overseas. Artists of all mediums and skill levels are also encouraged to participate.

The Prize was established and funded by Bermudian businessman and art collector John Charman.

Tom Butterfield, the founder of Masterworks Museum, said: “Masterworks is proud to facilitate and participate in the Biennial Charman Prize, where every other year artists and the community eagerly await its arrival.

“The commitment by John to seek fairness, coupled with equal access to participation from all residents of Bermuda or Bermudians overseas, contributes to its success.”

This year, the entry form deadline is May 3. Due to Covid-19, Masterworks will only be accepting digital submissions, via email or the Masterworks website.

Physical artwork must be submitted between May 17 and May 19, pending Covid-19 restrictions, to allow for time for judging and photography for the exhibition catalogue.

Bermudian artists on island and overseas, as well as non-Bermudians who have resided on island for more than six months, are eligible to sign up. Artists of all mediums and skill levels are also encouraged to join.

Application forms are available here. Applicants must be 18 years old or older.
