The Dubel Prize stands as a prestigious accolade, dedicated to acknowledging and uplifting emerging British artists who showcase their exceptional work either within the bounds of Britain or on the international stage.

We extend an invitation to all interested artists to submit their applications for consideration for this esteemed award. From the pool of submissions, a shortlist of twelve artists is meticulously curated at the outset of each calendar year. These chosen individuals are granted the unique opportunity to showcase their artistic brilliance at exclusive events hosted by the Dubel Prize.

As the year unfolds, the spotlight intensifies, leading us to the grand awards ceremony where a distinguished panel of judges, comprising curators, critics, authors, and industry experts from both the UK and beyond, will deliberate and select the emerging artist of the year.

In recognition of the myriad challenges faced by the performing arts in recent years—marked by numerous lockdowns, social restrictions, and health constraints—the Dubel Prize seeks to shine a spotlight on exceptionally talented artists. Our overarching mission is not only to applaud their creativity but also to offer unwavering support and assistance throughout the year and beyond.

Thank you for being an integral part of our journey to champion the next generation of artistic brilliance.
