The John Moores Painting Prize brings together the best in contemporary British painting right now.
‘The judging this year has been tougher than ever as our jurors embarked on the first-ever online judging of the prize. 67 paintings have been chosen from an extraordinary selection of almost 3000 paintings, and the incredible diversity of style and subject really brought to life the breadth of British contemporary painting.
At a time when we are standing further apart, this year’s exhibition demonstrates the power of art to tell individual stories that universally bring us together.’
