The Annex Collection

The Annex Collection is an independent arts organisation designed to support artists with a small injection of funds to assist with the continuation of practice.  

The Collection asks that the artist who is granted the £500 Acquisition Award, exchange their selected original work for inclusion in our collection.

The Award is open to submissions from artists working across all mediums. As well as painting, printmaking, sculpture & traditional visual arts, we welcome submissions from artists whose work presents a challenge in regards to monetisation. It is the aim of the collection to support the breadth of contemporary art practices & we are aware this often goes beyond the canvas. Submissions in the form of moving image & video, performative works & documentation of participatory happenings will be considered.

We have rolling deadlines and hold Awards 3 times per year. Please visit our website for further info:
