Burlington Contemporary Art Writing Prize 2013

The Burlington seeks to discover talented young writers on contemporary art, with the winner receiving £1000 and the opportunity to publish a review of a contemporary art exhibition in The Burlington Magazine. Since its founding in 1903, The Burlington Magazine has always considered the art of the present to be as worthy of study as the art of the past. The Burlington Contemporary Art advances the Magazine’s commitment to the study of contemporary art by encouraging aspiring young writers to critically engage with its forms and ideas. The also promotes clear, concise and well-structured writing that is able to navigate complicated territory without recourse to complicated language.
