Art Fund Prize - Museum of the Year

06 May 2021/Categories: Grants_and_Funding

The purpose of The Art Fund Prize (formerly the Gulbenkian Prize) for museums and galleries is to recognise and stimulate originality and excellence in museums and galleries in the UK, and increase public appreciation and enjoyment of all they have to offer.

Fund Information

Funding body:
The Art Fund
Maximum value:
£ 100,000
Application deadline:
01/06/2021

Background

The Art Fund Prize is administered by The Museum Prize, a charitable company created in 2001 by representatives of National Heritage, the Museums Association, The Art Fund, and the Campaign for Museums.

These organisations agreed to put aside award schemes they formerly ran (including National Heritage's Museum of the Year) and lend their support to this single major prize.

From 2003 to 2007, the main funder of the Prize was the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation UK Branch.  The Art Fund took over sponsorship of the Prize from 2008.

Objectives of Fund

The purpose of The Art Fund Prize (formerly the Gulbenkian Prize) for museums and galleries is to recognise and stimulate originality and excellence in museums and galleries in the UK, and increase public appreciation and enjoyment of all they have to offer.

Value Notes

A single award of £100,000 is usually presented to a museum or gallery whose entry, in the opinion of the judges, best meets the Prize criteria through a project completed or mainly undertaken in the previous calendar year.

£15,000 will be awarded to each of the other finalists.

Who Can Apply

The Prize is open to all museums and galleries in the United Kingdom. The Trustees normally expect applicants to be participants in the accreditation scheme operated by Arts Council England.

Exceptions will be considered where organisations are in the public sector, or have charitable status, and whose activities are based on the care and interpretation of collections of historical, artistic or scientific interest.  The Trustees' decision on eligibility is final.

Applicants must be open for at least half the week at least six months of the year.

Only one entry may be submitted per individual museum or gallery.  Where an organisation operates several museums and galleries, an entry may be submitted for each, but in drawing up the long-list, judges will not select more than one entry from the same multi-site service. Museums can enter in consecutive years but a museum that has won cannot apply for another three years after the year of winning.

Entries may be submitted on behalf of collaborative projects between one or more organisations, but the entrant will be taken to be the lead museum or gallery 'in association with' its partners.

Restrictions

Only one entry per museum or gallery is permitted. Where an organisation operates several museums and galleries, they may submit an entry for each, but no more than one site can be included on the judges' long list of applicants.

Location

United Kingdom.

How To Apply

The deadline for applications is 1 June 2021 (12:00 BST).
