The Moth Art Prize consists of €1,000 plus a two-week stay at The Moth Retreat, which is situated along a beautiful country lane in Ireland. The Moth Retreat features a large studio/living area, kitchen/breakfast room downstairs, separate brush room, bedroom, and bathroom upstairs. The accommodation is warm and inviting and a keen eye has been kept on William Morris’s golden rule: ‘Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.’

Testimonials

‘I’m over the moon about winning The Moth Art Prize. The Moth has always been brilliantly curated, with exquisite artwork and thoughtful writing throughout. And a couple of weeks in the countryside is exactly what my artist soul needs.’ Gregory Mortenson

‘I am so grateful to the folks at The Moth for awarding me this prize. I think getting out of New York for a bit will be healthy. It will be an amazing and much-needed time to regroup, reflect on my work and tinker with some new ideas.’ Bradley Wood

‘A lot of credit should go to The Moth, always wonderfully idiosyncratic and beautifully designed, for launching the prize and responding to figurative painting, largely ignored by the contemporary art scene. We have nothing like it in the UK.’ David Piddock

One of its founding principles was to hold an annual exhibition of work by both members and non–members of merit. Now in its 138th year, this event remains one of the highlights of the Northern Irish arts calendar. The 138th Annual Exhibition will be on show at the Ulster Museum from 18th October 2019 to 5th January 2020.

Artists selected for this prestigious exhibition can expect to have their work viewed by audiences in excess of 90,000. The Royal Ulster Academy is supported generously by a range of sponsors offering prizes from £500 to £1,000 to artists. The exhibition is a great way for emerging artists to sell their work and gain recognition. Last year, the Arts Council of Northern Ireland bought approximately 20 works from the exhibition. The exhibition is complemented by a range of artist talks, lectures, workshops and interactive activities. A proportion of these activities are available to artist who apply under the open submission.
