The ARTiculation Prize

The ARTiculation Prize is an internationally acclaimed annual competition designed to promote the appreciation and discussion of art. The competition engages 16 to 19-year old students with art to develop their confidence and ability to express their opinions, thoughts and conclusions. Students deliver a ten-minute presentation to an audience about a work of art, architecture or an artefact of their choice. Museums and galleries across the UK including the The National Gallery, the BALTIC, the Whitworth and the Ashmolean host the regional finals. Eminent gallery directors, artists, journalists and academics adjudicate The Prize. The Finals and ARTiculation Symposium are held at Clare College, University of Cambridge.

The Discover ARTiculation Prize introduces younger students aged 14 to 16 to the key skills that ARTiculation promotes. The Final of Discover ARTiculation is held at the University of Leeds.

An extensive programme of outreach workshops targeting state maintained schools which fit the widening participation category runs alongside The ARTiculation Prize.

ARTiculation is also established in Scotland, Ireland and, in partnership with the British Council, in Italy.

ARTiculation is part of the Roche Court Educational Trust’s programme based at the New Art Centre, Roche Court Sculpture Park in Wiltshire. The Trust works with young people, specialist groups and teachers to develop knowledge, skills and confidence by looking, thinking and speaking about art. ARTiculation takes the ethos of Roche Court Educational Trust to a national and international audience.
