Last Chance to Register for Britain's Biggest Contemporary Painting Competition
LIVERPOOL.- The last chance to register for Britain’s biggest contemporary painting competition, John Moores Contemporary Painting Prize 2010, is Friday 19 February 2010.

With a first prize of £25,000 (cash prize) and four further prizes of £2,500 each for the runner’s up, this is one of the most illustrious events in the British art world.

The judging will take place throughout 2010 and will result in an exhibition at the Walker Art Gallery from 18 September 2010 to 3 January 2011, forming a central part of the Liverpool Biennial. This year the popular Visitors’ Choice prize will award its winner £2010.

The jurors form a strong team of experience and expertise, with former Royal Academy Exhibitions Secretary Sir Norman Rosenthal joined by contemporary artists Goshka Macuga and Gary Hume, Liverpool-born artist Ged Quinn and painter Alison Watt.

The John Moores Contemporary Painting Prize is an open submission competition available to all UK-based artists working with paint. Previous winners have included David Hockney, Peter Doig and Michael Raedecker.

The final deadline for artists to register is 19 February 2010 – online registration can be found on Images must be sent in by 5 March 2010 and winners will be announced at the opening of the exhibition.

Littlewoods founder Sir John Moores, a keen painter, started the exhibition in 1957. In the last 50 years nearly 2,000 artists have exhibited. More than 100 people have sat on the jury including singer Jarvis Cocker, writer Germaine Greer and artists Peter Blake, Tracey Emin and Jake and Dinos Chapman. The Moores family remain involved through the Walker’s partnership with the John Moores Liverpool Exhibition Trust.

Entries have to be original, new or recent paintings within a set size, designed to hang on walls, by someone who lives, or is based, in the United Kingdom. Full conditions are on the website. Judges will see all shortlisted artworks at Stage 2 of the judging process.
