Thanks to your encouragement and feedback about this powerful piece – ‘Concentration Camp, Sarajevo 1993’, which I painted earlier this year; I’ve decided to enter it into the John Moores Painting Prize 2016.
From Liverpool Museums website…
Open to all painters in the UK, works are selected anonymously by an independent jury. The Prize continues to honour the principles of open submission and democratic selection.
The jury, which is soon to be announced, will select a final shortlist of five paintings. The overall winner will receive £25,000 and four further prizes of £2,500 will be awarded.
The winner of the Visitors’ Choice award, voted for by the public during the 2016 exhibition, will receive a prize of £2,016.
