This digital exhibition showcases the shortlisted entries to Durham University’s third annual Student Art Prize. The theme chosen for this year was ‘hidden’, a subject intended to enable a wide range of interpretative exploration and personal reflection.
The artworks shown here were selected from almost 80 entries by a judging panel of university and non-university representatives, artists, curators and creatives.
Each award is generously donated by University alumni to support the continued growth of student visual arts. We give thanks to the continued generosity of our founding sponsor, Alumnus Richard Roberts, who has confirmed his commitment and support to the development of the Student Art Prize for many years to come. Development of the prize in 2021/22 enabled the establishment of the premier ‘Richard Roberts Prize’, in honour of its namesake. In addition, new awards for photography were introduced.
