Aesthetica Magazine has launched its annual call for submissions for its Aesthetica Art Prize, a celebration of excellence in art from across the world.

Offering both emerging and established artists the opportunity to showcase their work to a wider audience, and win up to £5,000, it has been supporting the creative community since 2006, attracting thousands of entries from America to Australia.

Recent finalists include acclaimed director Toby Dye; Tokyo-based French architect and artist Emmanuelle Moureaux; Rachel Ara, whose work has been exhibited at the V&A, Barbican Centre and Whitechapel Gallery; Liz West, recipient of the Royal British Society of Sculptors Bursary Award; and Ellie Davies, who has since shown new and recent works in the exhibition Into the Woods at Crane Kalman, London.

There are two awards for entry: the Main Art Prize and the Emerging Art Prize. The Emerging Art Prize is open to current students and artists who have graduated within the last two years. The Main Art Prize is open to all, including those eligible for the Emerging Art Prize.

Submissions are open until 31 August 2019. You can enter online.
