About the Award


Reflecting its commitment to innovation, Aspen is further developing its renowned collection of contemporary art by commissioning unique online artworks by providing a new award for a Master's degree student based in the UK.

As a rapidly emerging field within contemporary art practice, art made for an online environment represents Aspen's commitment to the most cutting edge creative practice, as aligned with the company's ethos of human intervention and ingenuity.

The winner of the Aspen Online Art Award will benefit from the close support of Aspen, the Contemporary Art Society and site designers, True Digital. Developing a new commission as an online-specific artwork is at the heart of the award.

Each of the shortlisted artists is currently undertaking a Master's degree in a related subject area and has been nominated by their course director or head of school.
