Last few weeks to enter JM2010!

John Moores Project Manager Angela Samata looks after everything to do with the John Moores Contemporary Painting Prize – here she is to tell us about how things have been going with JM2010 so far…

John Moores Contemporary Painting Prize - JM2010

So, today is the day that the John Moores Contemporary Painting Prize 2010 took the leap into the previously unknown world of Twitter – and what a response!  

The John Moores mailbox was full of entries and emails saying that other twitterers, if that’s the right term, had started following us when I arrived at the snowy and very chilly Walker Art Gallery this morning. 

The John Moores 2010 is also the first time that artists can enter online – another great success – with over 90% of entrants using this method to register for the prize and the chance to walk away with the £25,000 prize money.

The prize today has the same ethos it always has: to showcase the best of contemporary painting talent at the Walker art Gallery. It is open to all throughout the UK, professional and non professional artists alike.

Entrants now have just 6 weeks left to register, as the Call For Entries closes on 19 February 2010.

So enter online today at or email to request a registration form.

For all the latest JM2010 news, you can follow us on Twitter: @JohnMoores2010

Good luck with your entry!
