ARTiculation Prize England


ARTiculation takes place in 9 regions in England. Each region holds a Regional Final and supporting outreach workshops.

Workshops are available to non-selective state maintained schools and take place from September to December. In preparation for 2018, ARTicualtion will be delivering in school introductory sessions in three areas of regional development: Manchester, Kent and the South West.

Schools are required to hold an internal school heat during November or December to select a student to represent their school at the Regional Final. In areas of high demand, such as the London area, schools will be required to enter a Regional Heat where students will be selected to go through to the Regional Final.

The ARTiculation Conference and Grand Final take place at Clare College, Cambridge.  All schools are invited to attend the ARTiculation Conference and Final regardless of candidates’ selection. The Conference is designed to engage students in looking at and talking about art and architecture, as well as offering an insight into university life. The day includes:

  • A key note lecture presented by an art historian
  • Tours of the university art collections given by University of Cambridge undergraduates
  • A university fair
  • Q & A with the Tutors for Admissions and Access 

The 2018 ARTiculation Conference and Grand Final will take place on Friday 9 March 2017 at Clare College, Cambridge.
