"The stated aim of Contemporary British Painting is to explore and promote current painting. The subtext to this is giving voice back to the artist, the originator and source of painting. The real discourse around current painting is generated painter to painter and emanates from the studio and not from the boardrooms of institutions, directors’ offices, lecture halls or galleries. This prize is artists submitting themselves to consideration and selection by their peers." Simon Carter, co-founder of Contemporary British Painting and lead selector of the CBP Prize 2018.

The Contemporary British Painting Prize Exhibition 2024 will be selected from an open call for contemporary painters of all nationalities currently living and working in the UK.

At least twelve artists will be shortlisted for the three exhibitions - the first at BayArt Gallery in Cardiff, the second at Thames-Side Studios Gallery in London, and the third at Huddersfield Art Gallery.

The exhibiting artists will be selected by four members of Contemporary British Painting.

The shortlisted painters will each exhibit at least three works at the Cardiff exhibition, from which a separate judging panel will select one prizewinner and one highly commended painter. 

The prizewinner will receive £8000, an essay on their work, and an invitation to become a member of Contemporary British Painting as well as a selector for the CBP Prize 2025. The Highly Commended artist will receive £2000.

Additionally, one artist will receive the Blyth Gallery Exhibition Award. 

All exhibitors will receive a £400 exhibitor's fee.

Information about the venues, all prizes, previous prizewinners and this year's selectors and judges can be found on our website.
