University of the Arts London is pleased to launch the 2012 Bar-Tur Award.
The award was established in 2011 in memory of Ann Lesley Bar-Tur (1947-1984). Ann was an exceptionally talented British artist and alumna of Chelsea College of Art & Design who died after long illness in 1984. The award has been created by her family and friends in collaboration with the University.
The Bar-Tur Award is open to all current students studying at UAL and University Alumni who have graduated in the last ten years. Students and graduates will be able to submit up to 4 images to this year’s award theme.
The selected theme for 2012 is ‘Olympian’. The judges will be looking for entries that demonstrate the breadth, depth and diversity this may mean to individuals, communities and society. The theme has been chosen to reflect a diversity of interests and concerns of the broad community of photographic practitioners at UAL and amongst its graduates.
The Bar-Tur Award is open for submissions from 6pm, 22 March 2012 until 10pm, Thursday 3 May 2012.
