neo:artprize is an open exhibition inviting work in any media from artists of all ages and nationalities who practice contemporary visual art in the UK. The prize aims to support artists and to bring to Bolton the best contemporary art from across the UK. Neo:artists Studios is a not-for-profit organisation founded to aid the development of creative practitioners in Bolton and the surrounding areas. We offer affordable studio spaces, printing and sculpture facilities, exhibition and curating opportunities as well as workshops, skill sharing and peer support. Together we can raise the profile of contemporary art in the North West of England and beyond.

Neo:artists are calling for submissions to their first national open exhibition to be held in the summer of 2012, the neo:artprize with a top prize of £1,000. Neo: are expecting a high level of submissions with entry open to all contemporary visual artists living and working in the UK. As well as having the chance to win, selected work will be displayed in an exhibition at the brand new neo:gallery 22 in the heart of Bolton’s busy Market Place. The exhibition will run from 14th June to 28th July with a special preview night to launch the event guaranteeing maximum exposure to all artists who are selected to exhibit. Work can be in any media and in the first instance artists are invited to submit images online by the 13th May for the first selection process. Selections and curating will be made by Kwong Lee, Director of the prestigious Castlefield Gallery and Aileen McEvoy, former Director Arts Council England.
