Art award

The Liberty Specialty Markets Art Award – UK is a programme designed to support emerging artists transitioning from art school to the commercial art world. 

Since 2018, we have supported the development of 35 artists. Our current cycle features 12 artists from The University of Brighton – School of Art, The Art Academy London, and Kingston School of Art.

The programme provides artists with the commercial skills needed to build a sustainable career, including development opportunities through mentoring, networking, and workshops covering topics like personal branding and gallery relationships. 

We offer three awards per cycle: a £3000 prize selected by Expert Judges, a £2000 prize voted by our employees and a £1000 prize chosen by our Broker community. Plus, the Artists taking part are paid to display their work in our London office.
