    The Burlington Contemporary Art Writing Prize 2017

    Since its founding in 1903, The Burlington Magazine has always considered the art of the present to be as worthy of study as the art of the past. The Burlington Contemporary Art Writing Prize advances our commitment to the study of contemporary art by encouraging aspiring young writers to critically engage with its forms and concepts. The Prize promotes clear, concise and well-structured writing that is able to navigate sophisticated ideas without recourse to over-complex language.

    £1000 Prize. The winner will also receive the opportunity to publish a review of a contemporary art exhibition in The Burlington Magazine. Each contender will be offered a digital subscription to the Magazine at a specially reduced price, providing access to the latest articles and reviews and five years' worth of back issues.

    About the 2017 judges. The 2017 Prize will be judged by Julia Peyton-Jones, former Director of the Serpentine Galleries, London (1991–2016), and Martin Caiger-Smith, Head of the MA Programme Curating the Art Museum at the Courtauld Institute of Art, London (2007–), and former Head of Exhibitions and Acting Director at the Hayward Gallery, London.

    Submission Requirements. Contenders – who must be no older than 35 years of age and have published no more than 6 exhibition reviews – should submit one unpublished review of a contemporary art exhibition, no more than 1000 words in length with up to three low-resolution images. ‘Contemporary’ is defined as art produced since 2000. The submitted review must be written in English (although the art considered may be international) and emailed as a Word document, clearly stating the name, age, country of residence and occupation of the writer, to editorial@burlington.org.uk.

    The Rijksmuseum Fellowship Programme

    The Rijksmuseum operates a research Fellowship Programme for outstanding candidates working on the art and history of the Low Countries whose principal concern is object-based research.

    Programme
    The aim of the programme is to train a new generation of museum professionals: inquisitive object-based specialists who will further develop understanding of art and history for the future. The focus of research should relate to the Rijksmuseum’s collection, and may encompass any of its varied holdings, including Netherlandish paintings, sculpture, decorative arts, prints, drawings, photography and historical artefacts. The purpose of the programme is to enable applicants to base part of their research at the Rijksmuseum, to strengthen the bonds between the universities and the Rijksmuseum, and to encourage the understanding of Netherlandish art and history. The programme offers students and academic scholars access to the museum’s collections, library, conservation laboratories and curatorial expertise.

    • The Migelien Gerritzen Fellowship for conservation research
    • The Manfred & Hanna Heiting Fellowship for photo-historical research
