The Oaktree and Tiger Art Advisory Ashurst Emerging Artist Prize 2016 is focused on supporting the widest number of artists possible through its structure. Having seen many artists unhappy at the format of paying a fee to enter a prize to potentially not receiving anything back unless they win, we aimed to create a prize that offered something positive to all entrants. In its third year, we have seen the prize triple in size and have introduced new awards, industry sponsors, and a talks programme.
