New Lights is delighted that there are now 5 prizes available to artists short-listed for exhibition. The two newest prizes are detailed below.

Norman Ackroyd RA CBE, one of our judges, this year’s Royal Academy’s Summer Exhibition co-ordinator and one the best print-makers we have ever seen has kindly sponsored a prize for the artist producing a work in the medium Norman’s name has become synonymous with. The winner of the Norman Ackroyd Prize for the best etching in the show will receive £1,000.

The second new prize is the tig Prize for the most outstanding representational work. This prize will carry wide appeal and will have promotional benefits for the winner as tig (The Inter Group) will produce 1,000 A5 postcards of the winner’s work.

We are extremely grateful for all our sponsors’ generosity.
