breese little

The BREESE LITTLE Prize for Art Criticism was launched in September 2010. The aim of the prize is to support, encourage and provide a platform for aspiring writers of art criticism.

This year’s judging panel includes Paul Hobson, Director of Modern Art Oxford, and Jan Dalley, Art Editor at Financial Times for Volume XI.

Art Quarters Press, the prize’s primary sponsor, was joined by Elephant Magazine and Laurence King Publishing, increasing the prize from £600 to £1,000. The regularity of the prize cycle is now twice a year, accompanied by a minimum age limit of 21 years old and no upper age limit. Elephant will invite the writer of the winning submission to write a commission. The magazine and Laurence King look forward to finding new voices in publishing and visual culture, specifically the potential for ongoing development and support such as print and book projects.

For inspiration, take a look at last year’s winner, Gary Zhexi Zhang with his review of Ed Atkins at the Serpentine in Volume X here.
