Applications are now open for the Access ART X Prize. The Prize awards early-career artists from Africa and its Diaspora with opportunities to develop their practices, with the intention of setting them up for the highest levels of success on the global stage. Formerly open only to Nigerian emerging artists, The 2022/3 edition has evolved to include an additional award in collaboration with Guest Artists Space Foundation that is open to emerging artists from all of Africa and its Diaspora, in a bid to buttress sustainable careers for a wider range of artists.
