Jackson’s Painting Prize started in 2016 to spotlight amateur and emerging artists, and has steadily grown in size and reputation to where it is today.

In 2022, we received nearly 9000 entries from 107 countries, with the shortlist gaining tens of thousands of views online with huge acclaim.

This year, the winners will be exhibiting at Affordable Art Fair Hampstead, followed by a summer exhibition at Bankside Gallery next to Tate Modern.

With 16 prizes and two London exhibitions set for 2023, we’re dedicated to providing entrants worldwide with better opportunities year on year, and building an inspiring community of talent.
