KAA students selected as finalists of Aldridge Junior Signature Art Prize
The Aldridge Junior Signature Prize was launched in 2019 in partnership with Artellite, one of the first online graduate art galleries. The Prize inspires, informs and develops confidence in young people to raise their aspirations and explore how their talent could lead to a career in the arts or creative industry.
Young people aged 14-18, attending the family of Aldridge schools and colleges, 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, meet professionals within the art world and promote and celebrate their work alongside an international competition. Additionally, the overall winner each year has the chance to gain invaluable industry experience through an internship with Artellite.
We’re delighted to announce that we have not 1, but 4 students represented in the Aldridge Junior Signature Art Prize this year. This is real achievement for the students as they were selected from over 180 entrants. You can view all the finalists’ work in this brochure: FINALISTS of JUNIOR SIGNATURE ART PRIZE 2022 Submissions
Congratulations to Natasha, Manar, Layla and Zeina on having their work shortlisted for the finals! They will now attend the exhibition of shortlisted work in June, where the winner of each category and the overall winner will be announced, and given the opportunity to attend a internship with Artellite.
