Prisoner arts award open

The 2019 Koestler Awards are open for entries.

The annual Koestler Awards offer cash awards, written feedback, certificates, mentoring, publication, exhibition and sale opportunities to people in custody.

The Awards can give a creative outlet and recognition for a broad range of creative work.

Every entrant to the Awards is in with a chance for being selected for the Koestler Trust’s annual exhibition at Southbank Centre. Last year’s show was curated by relatives of prisoners who explored the impact of imprisonment on families through their selections.

This September the Koestler Trust team is working with a (soon to be announced) musician to select the works.

The deadline is 4th April. Find out more here
