Portraits from the Precipice: Top 13 finalists announced!

Portraits from the Precipice: Top 13 finalists announced!

We're delighted to announce that our panel of judges have selected their Top 13 finalists for Portraits from the Precipice, our climate change art prize with Octopus Energy. We were planning to choose a Top 10, but the quality of the work was so great, that we decided we should work to the number 13 instead, which feels appropriate because it is the number of the UN's Sustainable Development Goal 13 related to climate change.

The finalists have all been invited to attend a prize giving event at the Royal Academy of Arts in London on 20th February, at which the first, second and third prize winners will be announced. The first prize winner will receive £10,000 from Octopus Energy, the second prize winner will receive £1,000 and third prize winner will received £250 of Cass Art vouchers. Artfinder will also announce a 'People's choice' award for the artwork from the finalists which receives the most favourites between now and the 20th February.
