The Aldridge Junior Signature Art Prize was launched in 2019 in partnership with Artellite, one of the first  online graduate art galleries, and Callsign, a leading cyber security firm.

Students are invited to submit a piece of artwork in one of the following categories: Fine Art, Photography, Graphics, Film, Textiles. A panel of industry experts select a shortlist of 12 artists who are invited to visit some of London’s top galleries, see what goes on behind the scenes of an art exhibition, attend a special preview event and be in with a chance of winning some incredible prizes. The overall winner is offered an internship with Artelllite.

Taking part in the Junior Art Prize has made me feel really lucky and when I saw my work up, it made me feel really proud and overall amazing. It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity.
