The Young Masters Art Prize celebrates contemporary artists from all over the globe who pay homage to the skill and traditions of the past.  The Prize was established by gallerist Cynthia Corbett in 2009. This year the shortlist has been selected from over 300 applications and the winner will be selected by a panel of judges comprising art historian and journalist, Godfrey Barker (Head Judge); Secretary and Chief Executive of the Royal Academy of Arts, Charles Saumarez Smith; Founder of Sphinx Fine Art, Roy Bolton; international collector, Werner Grub; Founder and Director of Fluff PR, Ben Austin; and Associate Director of the Young Masters Art Prize, Daisy McMullan.

The artists will participate in two exhibitions at Sphinx Fine Art and Lloyds Club, London between September and December 2014, curated by young collaborative duo R/E Collective and featuring previous winner Lottie Davies as a guest artist. On Wednesday 29 October, at a VIP event sponsored by Baydonhill, the judging panel will award three prizes: an overall prize of £1,500, and two highly commended prizes of £500 each, kindly donated by the Artists’ Collecting Society.  The winning artists will also be invited to exhibit in a showcase of their work abroad, as part of the 2015 Young Masters International Tour.
