The LSM art awards is now in its third year. It was created to provide a valuable professional development opportunity for ten graduate artists each year. As well as benefitting from showing work at Liberty’s offices in Central London with the opportunity to sell work via an auction, each artist is able to take part in a year long professional development programme. The graduate artists will be given a participation fee of £500 each and a contribution to travel expenses.  For 2020 the LSM awards will be open to selected students from The Art Academy, Kingston School of Art and University of Brighton – School of Art. Each participating art school will have at least two artists from their institution chosen to take part.
