McGovern Shawn 'Jess and Hayden' winner of the Contemporary Arts Trust Award

The Contemporary Arts Trust’s objective is to assist deserving artists who show promise; to encourage them to remain in the arts and continue on their creative journey. Contemporary Arts Trust encourages every discipline within the Fine Applied Arts. Since its formation, the Trust has given more than £375,000 in prizes and awards.

Contemporary Arts Trust is run entirely by unpaid trustees, all of whom have extensive and enthusiastic experience in the arts and management. Every pound donated by Members, Patrons and Award Donors goes to the artists and arts the Trust supports.

The Trust is pleased to offer £1,000 to the most deserving artist in the exhibition. 

The 2018 Prize was won by Shawn McGovern for ‘Jess and Hayden’.
