Five for The John Ruskin Prize | www.ruskinprize.co.uk
Your generous support will enable the charities behind The John Ruskin Prize to continue supporting UK based artists and designers and to bring John Ruskin's ideas to a new audience through emerging contemporary art & design.
The John Ruskin Prize is a collaborative, non-profit initiative of The Big Draw and The Guild of St George.
The Guild of St George Charity Number: 231758
The Big Draw Charity Number: 1114811
Where does your donation go? Your support enables us to award cash prizes to artists, deliver a free programme of associated events, host both a regional and London based shortlist exhibition, cover the costs of delivery of works and produce a catalogue. Our ultimate goal is to pay artists a hanging fee for taking part in the exhibition ( in line with a-n's 'paying artists' campaign).
Thank you for your five (or multiple of) for The John Ruskin Prize.
Since the prize was launched in 2012, we have awarded £17,000 to 8 artists and showcased the work of over 75 artists, designers and makers at high profile exhibitions across the UK.

The John Ruskin Prize was inaugurated in 2012 by The Guild of St. George and The Big Draw (formerly the Campaign for Drawing). It aims to uphold Ruskin’s belief that drawing helps us to see the world more clearly and therefore take greater heed of its fragility. The Prize promotes and provides exposure of emerging and established artists and makers using a wide range of media and techniques. Now in its fourth year, The John Ruskin Prize is establishing itself as a showcase for emerging talent and established artists from all reaches of the UK. The John Ruskin Prize 2017, Hand & Eye: Master of All Trades in The Age of Jack, opened up the prize to craftspeople and makers, and received a record number of entries. READ MORE
