Access Bank ART X Prize 2019 for emerging Artists (N1,500,000 grant)

Application Deadline: August 16th 2019

Since the 2018 edition, the Access Bank ART X Prize has evolved to bolster the efforts of emerging artists who have demonstrated a commitment to careers as professional visual artists. ART X believes that supporting such talent will ensure the continued growth of the visual art sector in Nigeria. In the absence of infrastructure that exists in other international centres for contemporary art, the Access Bank ART X Prize was launched to contribute to the burgeoning contemporary art sector in Nigeria.

Eligibility Criteria

  • A practicing visual artist for 3 years or more
  • Not currently enrolled as a student
  • Nigerian citizen, living and working in Nigeria

The 2019 Prize Features

  • N 1,500,000 towards a project in progress
  • Solo presentation of the project at ART X Lagos
  • Mentoring and networking support to realize, promote, and contextualize the project
  • A three month residency at Gasworks in London in 2020
