The winners for this year’s awards were selected from a shortlist of 30 artists that were chosen out of a record number of entries this year, which exceeded 2,000 international artists with almost 4,700 artworks. We were thrilled once again to support the Photography award, with a £1500 production award and mentorship for the winner.
All winners of the Ashurst Emerging Artists Prize will have solo shows at Ashurst’s London headquarters and Rich Mix London from the 25th of October until the 7th of January 2022.
A huge congratulations to all of the shortlisted artists, winners and commended entries, from all of us at Genesis Imaging!
