Sarah Emily Porter finalist for Broomhill National Sculpture Park Prize
The Broomhill Art and Sculpture Foundation launched, in 2009, the Broomhill National Sculpture Prize (NSP) with an annual prize fund of £15,000 to provide an exciting challenge for new and emerging UK based sculptors.
Each year ten short-listed sculptors selected by a panel of judges receive £1,000 each to create their proposed sculpture which is then exhibited at the Broomhill Sculpture Park in an annual NSP summer Exhibition.
The competition is open to UK based artists, currently studying (or within 10 years of graduation) an art-related course at a recognised School of Art.
The ten shortlisted artists in the 2018 Broomhill National Sculpture Prize are Nathan Caldecott, Jack Cheetham, Rob Good, Bea Haines, Hannah Honeywill, Naomi Kirk-Smith, Alla Malova, Rosie Sherwood, Darren Ray and Sarah Emily Porter, one of Artrooms Fair Roma 2018’s selected artists.
As the successful finalists begin to create their artworks, the public can follow the progress of each sculpture through the NSP Blog.
The judges’ winner receives £3,500. This piece becomes part of the Broomhill Art and Sculpture Foundation collection.
The ‘Public Speaks’ winner receives £1,500. This title is given to the sculpture that receives the most public votes during the exhibition period. Voting takes place at Broomhill and online
