The Marmite Prize is an artist run non-profit organisation that exists to celebrate and promote excellence in contemporary painting. It has no other agenda with no public or private funding swaying opinion. Integral to the whole project is that the selection is done anonymously.

The shortlisted paintings were selected by Marcus Cope (Painter and Co-founder & Curator of the Marmite Prize for Painting), Jane Hayes Greenwood (Artist and Director of Block 336, London, UK), Aoife Ruane (Director of Highlanes Gallery, Drogheda, Ireland). Daniel Sturgis (Artist, Curator and Course Director in Painting, Camberwell College of Arts, London) and Colin Martin (Artist and School Principal at Royal Hibernian Academy, Dublin, Ireland).

This year the Prize launched with a small social media buzz asking the painting community to choose the painters they wanted to be the judges. As a result painters Phillip Allen, Vanessa Jackson RA and Mark O’Kelly will be joining Marmite Prize IV winner Brian Cheeswright on the panel to select the prizewinners.

The Marmite Prize is unique in that the main prize is an artwork.

Main Prize - a sculpture specially made and donated by Alison Wilding RA.
Student Prize - a month long residency at Bon Volks studios in Margate and £500 cash towards travel and expenses.
Two runners-up will receive a pat on the back, each.

Dedication is what you need, and as such each year the Marmite Prize has been dedicated to an artist admired by the exhibition curators, influencing the exhibition hang in some way. This year Mary Heilmann is their star.

Following its London showing, the exhibition will tour to Highlanes Gallery in Drogheda, Ireland 8th July - 10th September.
