The Gilchrist-Fisher Award is a biennial prize established in 1987 and open to all artists under the age of 30 whose work explores the broad theme of Landscape.
Originally instituted as a painting prize, work is now accepted in all media except video and installation.
The panel of judges – photographer Harry Cory-Wright, sculptor Laura Ford and painter Elizabeth Magill – will meet in June 2019 to select a short list of six artists to take part in the Final Show in March 2020 at Rebecca Hossack Art Gallery, Conway Street, London W1T 6BA.
The winner will receive £6000 from the Alasdair Gilchrist-Fisher Memorial Trust.
Previous winners of what the Financial Times has called ‘this remarkable and admirable’ prize include Peter Doig, Alasdair Wallace and Angela Hughes.
