ALDRIDGE JUNIOR SIGNATURE ART PRIZE
THE ALDRIDGE JUNIOR SIGNATURE ART PRIZE WINNERS & JUDGES 2020
An incredible opportunity for young people aged 14-18 to enter a prestigious art competition, giving them the chance to have their artwork displayed alongside a professional exhibition at the Bankside Hotel, London.
The Aldridge Junior Signature Art Prize was launched in 2019 in partnership with Artellite, one of the first online graduate art galleries, and Callsign, a leading cyber security firm.
Students are invited to submit a piece of artwork in one of the following categories: Fine Art, Photography, Graphics, Film, Textiles. A panel of industry experts select a shortlist of 12 artists who are invited to visit some of London’s top galleries, see what goes on behind the scenes of an art exhibition, attend a special preview event and be in with a chance of winning some incredible prizes. The overall winner is offered an internship with Artelllite.
"Taking part in the Junior Art Prize has made me feel really lucky and when I saw my work up, it made me feel really proud and overall amazing. It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity."

The competition gave young people an opportunity to enter their work in to a professional exhibition – 39 entries were received in the first year and 12 shortlisted artists went on have their work judged by professionals from the sector, meet artists in the early stages of their careers and see their work professionally hung in a central London exhibition, alongside finalists of the international Signature Art Prize.
