Attention Artists: You have just 3 days left to submit for WW Gallery‘s prestigious SOLO Award!
The SOLO Award is an annual contemporary art prize established by WW gallery in 2012, which recognises independent thinking, going it alone and taking risks. It is open to artists of any age, working in any medium. The winner receives a cash prize and a solo exhibition at the London Art Fair. The selection panel looks for artists who are not afraid to stand out from the crowd, artists with the strength and foresight to buck the trend and create work that is truly avant-garde.

After being drawn in by her work at the London Art Fair back in January, ArtAttack had the chance to speak with Korean artist, Kyung Hwa Shon, about her work, inspirations and advice for young artists just starting out.
The MASK PRIZE is an annual competition for young people under the age of 25 living in Africa and its Diasporas. Predominantly engaging schools in Kenya, the prize is now in its third year and challenges the creative skills of children, teenagers and young adults from the continent to think about ways of celebrating, imagining and reflecting on the places they live in and the people they live with.
The recipient of this year’s exciting art prize is Allyson McIntyre whohas just completed an MFA in Fine Art at Goldsmiths, and in fact applied for this award whilst finishing up her degree.
Founded in 2013 by famed restaurateur Mark Hix alongside CNB Gallery director, Rebecca Lidert, the award is designed to provide young, emerging artists a platform to show their work, in hopes of giving them that first boost they need following graduation. In a sense, the prize works to set artists off in the right direction post-university, which of course, gives it a special place in our hearts here at ArtAttack, where we strive to help student and graduate artists jumpstart their artistic futures.
