The Burlington Contemporary Art Writing Prize seeks to discover talented young writers on contemporary art, with the winner receiving £1,000 and the opportunity to publish a review of a contemporary art exhibition in The Burlington Magazine.

Since its founding in 1903, The Burlington Magazine has always considered the art of the present to be as worthy of study as the art of the past. The Burlington Contemporary Art Writing Prize advances their commitment to the study of contemporary art by encouraging aspiring young writers to engage critically with its forms and concepts. The Prize promotes clear, concise and well-structured writing that is able to navigate sophisticated ideas without recourse to over-complex language.

Contenders for the prize must be no older than 35 on 26 February 2018 and have published no more than six exhibition reviews. 

The judges of the 2017 Burlington Contemporary Art Writing Prize are artist Fiona Banner and Jenni Lomax, the former Director of Camden Art Centre, London (1990–2017).

Deadline: Monday 26 February 2018
