In addition to the cash prizes listed above; Dave Bown Projects will be buying works of art from artists as submissions are received.

What our past prize recipients are saying
“Receiving an unrestricted monetary award from Dave Bown Projects … afforded me the opportunity to be able to buy additional supplies I needed, in particular, larger panels to paint on. Also, the recognition on their web site gained me more web site traffic and I got the opportunity to work with a new gallery as a direct result of the recognition from the award.”
— Brenda Hope Zappitell

Selection Process
Early entries are encouraged. Previewing will occur on a daily and weekly basis by Dave Bown Projects as submissions are received.

What our past jurors are saying
“It was an honor … The variety of submissions was impressive, ranging from intimate figurative drawings to large-scale abstract paintings and from sculptural constructions to gallery-sized installation work. The creative impulse evident across the works was inspiring. I hope this important program will continue to grow and reach more artists in the future. It is a rare, generous, and much needed support for artists.”
— Diane Mullin, Senior Curator, Weisman Art Museum
