Artists from across the UK who have a love of painting are invited to submit a selection of 5 images (these should be j-pegs, ideally 1MB each in size) of your more recent work (along with a detail shot, so that the selectors can correctly understand your use of medium and ground) and a statement which outlines your practice to The Contemporary British Painting Prize. This first round of submissions will then be assessed by a group of practising painters who for 2017 are Julian Brown, Matthew Krishanu, Nicholas Middleton and Cathy Lomax (Winner of the 2016 Contemporary British Painting Prize).
