In 2014 we launched the Ashurst Emerging Artist Prize, a major new prize for up and coming artists globally.

It was built on the success of the Ashurst Emerging Artist initiative, which launched in November 2013 to support and mentor emerging artists and provide them with a platform to showcase their work. Since the launch, the Prize has seen a variety of artists working across different mediums successfully exhibit in the Emerging Artists Gallery at the firm's London office, gaining exposure to a wide and varying audience which, in some cases, has led to the artist securing the next important step in their career.

In its first year, the Prize received over 600 entries from more than 250 artists, a remarkable result in its inaugural year. In 2016, in only its second year, the Ashurst Emerging Artist Prize attracted more than 1,890 artworks entered by over 740 artists from all over the world, with works in sculpture, painting, photography and other art forms.

The Ashurst Emerging Artist Prize is open to entries from artists living anywhere in the world. Entries may use any medium in a range of formats, including painting, photography, mixed media or sculpture. The overall winner receives a £3,000 cash prize and a solo exhibition at the Emerging Artist Gallery in Ashurst's London office. There are also an additional Prize for sculpture entries - with a £1,000 cash prize for the winning sculptor - and an Ashurst Employee Choice Award, for which every employee across the firm has the opportunity to vote for their favourite artist. The winner of this award receives a cash prize of £1,500.

In November 2016 we announced an additional prize in association with a charity partner – the Ashurst Emerging Artist Prize for Rich Mix 2017. Rich Mix is an independent arts venue in East London which aims to bring together a wide range of people working in various art forms, offering them resources and an increasingly diverse audience. The winner will receive a £500 cash prize and a solo exhibition at Rich Mix. To qualify for this prize, an artist must live or work in East London, or their work must relate to this area.

The prize is also supported by the UK's leading independent art supplies retailer, Cass Art, who are giving a £500 gift voucher to the winner of the Ashurst Emerging Artist Prize to spend on art supplies, and a £250 gift voucher for both the Sculpture Prize and Employee Choice Award.
