The Hepworth Wakefield is one of ten finalists for the Art Fund’s ‘Museum of the Year 2013’ prize, the largest UK arts prize, which celebrates the UK’s best museums and galleries.
As part of this, the Art Fund Prize has organised a nationwide competition to find the best photograph inspired by the finalists and The Hepworth is inviting visitors to submit their Hepworth-inspired photographs for a chance to win.
The winning picture will capture the spirit of the museum. It could be the building, the works of art or the people. It could be serious or humorous, a snap or a carefully considered composition – it’s up to you.
The Art Fund will choose its favourite image from each of the ten museum finalists, then ask the public to choose the overall winner.
The winner will receivean iPad mini; aNational Art Pass (free & discounted entry to UK museums and art galleries for a year);an image published in Art Quarterly, the Art Fund’s magazine; and two tickets to the Museum of the Year ceremony on 4th June at the V&A, London.
