Sovereign Asian Art Prize: Christies Hong Kong

The Sovereign Asian Art Prize is recognised as the most prestigious prize in its field and region. In addition to the exhibition of finalists, there will be a panel discussion in partnership with the Financial Times. 

Held annually, the Sovereign Asian Art Prize invites mid-career contemporary artists - nominated by a carefully selected board of independent art experts from the region - to enter up to three artworks. Entries are then shortlisted by a small judging panel consisting of world-class art specialists, who select the best 30 artworks to be exhibited in a prominent public space in Hong Kong, where the pieces are judged a second time, in person. 

A panel discussion in partnership with the Financial Times will be held alongside the exhibition of shortlisted finalists of the Sovereign Art Prize.

More about the Sovereign Art Foundation: The Sovereign Art Foundation (SAF) was established in 2003 with a well-defined twin focus: to recognise the growing wealth of contemporary art talent in Asia, and bring the proven benefits of expressive arts to underprivileged children. "The beauty of our model is that we are able to achieve both goals in an eminently sustainable way. The Sovereign Asian Art Prize, now recognised as the most prestigious prize in its field and region, raises funds by auctioning those artworks that reach the final stage of the competition. The proceeds are then shared equally between the artists and the Foundation, to be used for our charitable projects across Asia."
