The Campaign for Drawing in collaboration with the Guild of St.George is excited to announce our final shortlist of artists for the second John Ruskin Prize: Recording Britain Now. Still a relatively new award in its second year, we invited entries from all over the UK offering ’Fresh, contemporary visions of the UK's urban, rural or social environment“.
From a wide selection of entries from just under 600 professional and amateur artists, after much deliberation, our selection panel came to a final shortlist of 23 artists. Impressed by the breadth of interpretation of this year's theme and the imagination, wit and technical skill of the works we received deciding on the final selection was no easy task.
The final selection will appear at Millenium Gallery, Sheffield, 28th June – 12th October 2014, partnering the major V&A exhibition, Recording Britain. The winner will be announced at the private view on Friday 27th June and will take home the £1,000 prize.

I am delighted with this and fingers crossed you never know????
The winner will be announced at the opening event at the Millenium Gallery,  Sheffield Fridat 27th June.
