Saatchi Gallery/Deutsche Bank Art Prize for schools

The Saatchi Gallery / Deutsche Bank Art Prize for Schools, is unique in its scope and accessibility; one of the largest international competitions it has around 20,000 entries submitted by students aged 4-18 years from around the world.

The final 20 shortlisted entries are exhibited in the Saatchi Gallery, London with £18,000 worth of prizes available for the winning school and student.

The Prize aims to support and encourage budding young artists by providing them with a platform to showcase their work, and giving them the confidence to continue studying art and to consider a creative career. Deutsche Bank's support of the Prize is part of the Bank's commitment to help young people access creative opportunities and fulfil their potential. Deutsche Bank’s youth engagement programme, Born to Be, has enabled the Saatchi Gallery to offer tailored artist-led workshops to pupils from schools in disadvantaged areas.  Having the opportunity to work with specialist art materials, they increase their understanding of fine art processes and are given support in entering the prize.

For 2016, the programme has been developed further with the addition of Continued Professional Development workshops for teachers. These aim to support art teachers who are working with limited resources by providing space, time, solutions and ideas to approaching art making, and ultimately serve to open up the Schools Prize to students from all educational backgrounds. The judging panel is made up of world renowned artists, gallery directors and critics. Notable previous judges include Sir Peter Blake, Antony Gormley, Marc Quinn,Yinka Shonibare and Bob and Roberta Smith. And an exhibition of the shortlisted entries will be shown at the Saatchi Gallery from 03-10 March 2016.
